Agroforestry is the intentional integration of trees into agricultural systems and understory crop production in forests. Regenerative agriculture is a dynamic approach to food and farming systems that seeks to restore and enhance the socio-ecological system as a whole for future generations. Learn more about these concepts from John Munsell and Adam Taylor, who will share how the principles and practices of agroforestry and regenerative agriculture are incorporated on the land at the Virginia Tech Catawba Sustainability Center (CSC) in rural southwest Virginia. They will also share plans for the future of food, farming, and agroforestry in the region with the CSC serving as a hub for learning, creativity, and community connectivity.
