Native plants are gaining attention in agriculture, landscaping, and wild places, in part due to growing concern about competitive invasive plants, and the importance of preserving diversity for ecosystem health. Many of these native perennial plants can also be ideal in agroforestry systems for their varied and valuable products.
During the the Center for Agroforestry’s intensive training Academy, Nadia Navarrete-Tindall, native plant expert and consultant, and Terry Durham, champion grower and organizer for American elderberry, shared their knowledge about and passion for native plants. Registration for the Agroforestry Academy is now open.
