Agroforestry for Landowners Field Day

  • University of Illinois Fruit Research Farm 2711 South Race Street Urbana, IL 61802 (map)

Join the Savanna Institute for the Agroforestry for Landowners Field Day 2018! 

This field day will give landowners a chance to visit two working agroforestry farms in East-Central Illinois. Saturn and Vulcan Farms are experimenting with perennial fruit and nut alternatives to annual crops such as soybeans and corn. Come see these crops first hand and learn how these fruits and nuts could support alternative local and regional markets with a smaller environmental footprint. There will also be ample time for asking questions and meeting other landowners who are interested in agroforestry.
