Savanna Institute Releases New Book: Perennial Pathways
Perennial Pathways: Planting Tree Crops is filled with all sorts of practical ways to integrate perennial crops on your farm. As a comprehensive, 110-page guidebook to designing and installing farm-scale edible agroforestry, this book is indispensable for new agroforestry farmers throughout the stages of farm startup: from the outset of envisioning into the thick of planting and managing crops. It provides sparks to the imagination and scaffolding for plans to take shape. Throughout, it informs decisions of when to “do it yourself” and when to seek help. The book is available as a free PDF download and also in physical form shipped directly to you for $20 (S&H included). Find the book at www.SavannaInstitute.org
