Forest farming – or agroforestry – is the practice of growing crops in the shade of the forest canopy.  Agroforestry is the art and science of utilizing the land in a way that benefits the local economy while preserving the natural systems upon which we all depend.  Forest farming products include herbs, fruits and hand-crafted items created from materials gathered in the woods.  The Forest Farmers’ Market features these products, as well as handmade items from local craftspeople.

 

The Forest Farmers’ Market is a free event featuring a warm atmosphere that will put you in the spirit of the season.
