Agroforestry and DPR Korea…

Agroforestry is not rocket science but it might save DPR Korea

April 30, 2012

There is more going on in DPR Korea than rocket science: local people in collaboration with natural resources scientists are taking control of their food supply through agroforestry. This is according to a report published in Agroforestry Systems journal.

How participatory agroforestry restored land and secured the food supply.

The report published online on 24 March, notes that in DPR Korea a bottom–up participatory process of developing locally appropriate agroforestry has been a revelation to many and is helping to reverse the chronic food shortages and land degradation of the 1990s.

    Cheers so much for all of the work that you do to spread the agroforestry and sustainable horticulture message to us all Spencer. I am sharing you at the moment (hope you don’t mind!) with a friend who is studying Environmental Science at university and who is currently doing a unit on Environmental and Ecological Accounting for Sustainable Development. Your latest posts are perfect for her and again, something that you feel passionately about is helping someone on the other side of the world. I spent ages yesterday searching through archives and finding all sorts of incredibly useful PDF’s to help us to turn Serendipity Farm into the most productive food forest with a minimal carbon footprint using local food plants and trees etc. that will grow in our climate. You really give us so much more than we give you so here is some kudos from Australia… 🙂

      Thanks for the kind words, again. And please feel free to share my page with any and all for whom you think it’ll be interesting/helpful. Meanwhile, I always enjoy reading your blog as well, always impressed with the quantity of written content you take time to create. I aspire to write more on this blog. Up until now I tend more towards photographs and blurbs. Come again soon.
