Reclaiming the Edges: The Role of Agroforestry in Urban Areas

  • 01/19/2017
  • 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Village of Lombard, IL
Urban landscapes contain a variety of elements and spaces – in areas that are overlooked, a challenge to maintain, and sometimes have room for improvement. The care of such areas is often the responsibility of a municipality, or park agency.

Join IFA member Dave Coulter of Osage, Inc. as he discusses practices from the world of agroforestry that might be applied to such areas. We live in a time when many are looking to add beauty, biodiversity and even food production into their communities. Taking a new look at improving some of these marginal spaces is the theme of this presentation.

NOTE:  Attendees should bring copies of maps of their towns/areas they manage to this workshop!
