Friday 3

A three-dimensional, perennial landscape with fruit and nut trees, shrubs and vines may sound like a good idea, but how do I make money while these crops mature? Once they mature, how and where do I sell these sometimes uncommon crops? We’ll discuss the economics of the agroforestry practice of alley cropping, then explore various marketing strategies. Learn about the newly formed perennial products company, Restoration Agriculture International, and its plans for the future.
