Jon Turner of Wild Roots Farm will provide current or soon-to-be homesteaders with methods and resources for developing existing woodlots and open fields into agroforestry systems that support food production, rotational grazing, and wildlife habitat. Wild Roots Farm Vermont is a 10-acre operation dedicated to farmstead education, biodiversity, and community engagement. By considering their relationship to the landscape, their intentions, and available natural resources, they continue to develop ecological food systems strongly influenced by agroforestry practices and climate resilience.
