Enhancing Rural Economies through Agroforestry:  Assessing Emerging Opportunties March 19-21, 2018

The USDA National Agroforestry Center, the USDA Interagency Agroforestry Team, and the USDA Economic Research Service are convening an invitation-only workshop to lay the foundation for assessing economic opportunities for the agricultural community to benefit from agroforestry. Producers, researchers, and professionals from the public, private, and non-profit sectors will discuss opportunities for enhancing the profitability of agroforestry through increased access to resources, markets, and payments and markets for ecosystem services. Small group discussions will identify ways to assess and strengthen these emerging opportunities.

FSA Stakeholder Engagement Specialist Sarah Campbell will participate in the workshop's panel discussion on accessing land and credit through the Farm Service Agency. More info here.
