Silvopasture, a guide to managing grazing animals, forage crops, and trees in a temperate farm ecosystem, Steve Gabriel ; foreword by Eric Toensmeier - paperback

Summary
In this how-to guide, ecologist and forest farmer Steve Gabriel explores the philosophy and techniques behind silvopasture - the integration of trees, animals, and forages in a whole-system approach that creates a number of benefits for livestock, farmers, and the environment. This system not only provides a sustainable farm income, but also holds the key to restoring land, building soil carbon, and creating climate resilience.--COVER
