Agroforestry Conference in Canada

May 18, 2012
From the May 21, 2012 Issue of Agri-News

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and the United States Department of Agriculture are hosting the Great Plains Windbreak Renovation and Innovation Conference at the International Peace Garden (IPG) on the border between Manitoba and North Dakota on July 24 to 26, 2012.
The conference is a focused learning and sharing opportunity initiated by the agroforestry centres of these two national agriculture departments and is being developed with state and provincial partners and other conservation organizations.

Land managers and conservation organizations on the Great Plains in both countries strive to manage the agricultural landscape in a way that is productive and profitable while conserving the natural resources on which agriculture depends. Because windbreaks have been a part of this landscape for over a century, knowledge about the management of existing windbreaks and the development and design of new ones is important from Texas to Alberta.

Interested Albertans are invited to take this opportunity to share their experiences and to learn from others. There is no registration fee; however, pre-registration is required, as lunches and refreshments as well as field tour transportation must be arranged. Costs to attendees include transportation to and from the IPG, accommodations, breakfasts and dinners and park entry fee.
