  • Reflection Question
    Food Learn More about Silvopasture
    Had you heard of the term "silvopasture" before now? After learning more about it, what do you think is the biggest advantage of silvopasture?

    I have never heard of silvopasture before the eco challenge. But I found that silvopasture is  the practice of integrating trees, forage, and the grazing of domesticated animals in a mutually beneficial way. It utilizes the principles of managed grazing, and it is one of several distinct forms of agroforestry. The biggest advantage of silvopasture is  it doesn’t just benefit the birds. Native pollinators, soil biology and many other animals also benefit.
