About our 2022 Winter Webinar Series

ForestFocus Full (2).png

"Forest Farming In Focus" is a series of 5 winter webinars that are designed to be a deeper dive into forest farming species, topics and practices. 

ABFFC and our partners have joined forces to create this special webinar series for experienced forest farmers* who want to dive deeper into common NTFPs and expand their understanding of forest farming species and practices. 

Each webinar in this series will bring together our best experts in the field, experienced forest farmers and learning resources for a full circle perspective of each topic. Together we will explore primary forest farming species and practices, as well

as engage in discussions with experienced forest farmers

with years of expertise.

Hosted on Zoom, each webinar will take place live at 6PM to 7:30PM. Each webinar will include links to a "pre website resource" that includes videos, publications and links, as a refresher for experienced forest farmers or a primer for newcomers. 

 

*While these webinars are more in-depth than most of our beginner level website resources, we invite beginner forest farmers, and those who are less familiar with these species to review our NTFP modules to learn about the basics prior to our webinars. Each module will include videos or playlists, publications and articles that would be helpful in bringing a beginner up-to-speed for these in-depth discussions.
