Evergreen Agriculture - the combination of trees in farming systems (agroforestry) with the principles of conservation farming - is emerging as an affordable and accessible science-based solution to caring better for the land and increasing smallholder food production.
The World Agroforestry Centre has compiled a web page to consolidate information available on Evergreen Agriculture into a central location.
For an overview of Evergreen Agriculture and the Centre’s vision, download Creating an Evergreen Agriculture in Africa for food security and environmental resilience. World Agroforestry Centre 2009, Nairobi Kenya.
