Forestry & Agroforestry Short Course Aug 13 - 15

Wellspring Forest Farm & School in Mecklenburg, NY is pleased to offer a 5-day short course in Forestry &Agroforestry this August 13 - 15 in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York.

Our instructors have spent decades studying forest & fungi ecology and developing management skills to share with students through woods walks, hands-on demonstrations, and storytelling.

Students will learn the overarching patterns and processes of forests and fungi, as well as take home practical skills they can immediately use on their own acreage or projects.

Courses are hosted at Wellspring Forest Farm & School, a living example of productive and restorative agroforestry farming that features forest and indoor mushroom production, rotational grazing of ducks and sheep, and production of forest products including maple and elderberry syrup.
