Please support our work to document and connect forest farmers in the temperate climates of North America. We are writing a book about the practice, theory, and principles of Forest Farming based on our years of research and successful real-world examples. About Us We are an agroforestry professor & researcher (Ken Mudge) and an extension […]
This upcoming book presents the agroforestry practice of forest farming. Ken Mudge and Steve Gabriel capture the basic patterns and practices of this uncommon form of agriculture capturing the imagination of small farmers, permaculture designers, and small woodlot owners.
The book presents an emerging dimension of farming and gardening called forest farming. With its potential for supplemental income generation guided by the processes and relationships found in natural forest ecosystems it has become a popular with permaculture practitioners, woodlot owners and small farmers.
Ken Mudge has been involved in agroforestry research, teaching and extension for over 20 years. Steve Gabriel is an ecologist, educator, forest farmer and co-founder the Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute.
This post is an example of the case studies we want to document for our book. Ken visited several forest farming sites during his 2012 sabbatical. It inspired us to visit and research more for the book.
