AFTA, the Association for Temperate Agroforestry, serves diverse agroforestry practitioners, educators and researchers in the US and Canada. This panel will discuss efforts and opportunities with AFTA and values of AFTA membership as the organization seeks to expand agroforestry awareness and application more broadly. AFTA hosts the North American Agroforestry Conference (NAAC), a biennial event that facilitates the exchange of scientific and practical information about temperate agroforestry in different regions of North America. As such, the NAAC is the primary forum for agroforestry research, extension and application in North America. AFTA also produces a quarterly newsletter to inform members of agroforestry applications and research findings from across North America and we are working to expand the scope and diversity of this publication. Producer perspectives on these and other activities will be part of the panel discussion, as well as plans for the 2021 NAAC. Meeting AFTA’s mission – to promote the wider adoption of agroforestry by landowners in temperate regions of North America – can only occur with engaged membership, come be a part of this discussion.
