What is the Coalition?

The Appalachian Forest Farmer Coalition (AFFC), former known as the Appalachian Beginning Forest Farmer Coalition, is a network of forest farmers, forestland owners, universities, and governmental and non-governmental organizations that share a common goal of improving agroforestry production opportunities and farming capabilities among forest farmers.

Our collective aim is to increase awareness of forest-grown medicinal, edible plants and products (non-timber forest products or NTFPs) through education and relationship building, and support conservation efforts through stewardship of existing plant populations and forest farming of these native botanicals.
