Appalachian Sustainable Development Expands Agroforestry Technical Assistance Program to help local and regional farmers
Appalachian Sustainable Development (ASD) is looking forward to another year of Agroforestry excellence with the expansion of its Agroforestry Technical Assistance program. ASD will provide a variety of free and low-cost services aimed at expansion or implementation of agroforestry practices. For more information, contact Emilie Tweardy, Agroforester, at firstname.lastname@example.org. New and experienced farmers and landowners should apply.

- For eligible applicants, a site visit conducted by ASD’s Agroforestry team to discuss details, implementation, design, maintenance and other site specifics may be available. Visits are $50 to help cover ASD’s time and travel.
- Site visits and technical support specifically for up to 8 aspiring maple syrup producers is available to qualified applicants.
