Perennial Farm Gathering

Thank you for supporting our Perennial Farm Gathering

The Perennial Farm Gathering brings the agroforestry community together to share our collective work to advance perennial agriculture. On February 4th, 2022, the community gathered for awards, a keynote panel, and our popular Nutshell talks. Watch the videos and subscribe to our newsletter to receive announcements about more events hosted by the Savanna Institute and the agroforestry community.

What are Nutshells and how do they work?

Nutshells are a fun flexible way to share updates about your work in agroforestry. Nutshell talks are five-minute presentations by event attendees delivered at a Savanna Institute event. They can include slides or other visual aids or simply be a talk with updates about your work. The Savanna Institute provides regular opportunities for members of the agroforestry community to give Nutshell talks.
