Agroforestry, Managing for Pollinators, and Planned Grazing in a Changing Climate

Join White River Conservation District, Dartmouth College Agroforestry Researcher Kristen Jovanelly, UVM Extension Pollinator Support Specialist Laura Johnson, and UVM Extension Grazing Specialist Amber Reed for a pasture walk focused on agroforestry, pasture rehabilitation, and pollinator and bird-friendly farming. Laura will talk about tips for supporting pollinators on farms including mowing patterns, fallowing, and forb and legume species selection. She will also talk about how to identify and monitor your pollinators. Amber will discuss her continuing experiments with pasture rehabilitation, and show how she incorporates trees into her grazing system. She will also cover grazing math and how to plan grazing in a changing climate. Kristen will talk about the myriad benefits and challenges of trees, different agroforestry systems, considerations of species and site selection as well as establishment and management. The group will discuss designing and managing agroforestry systems in the greater ecosystem of your farm. This workshop is free and open to the public. It is a workshop for the 2023-2024 Dairy Grazing and Agroforestry Cohort sponsored by Northeast Dairy Business Innovation Center and USDA SARE.
