Forest Farming   A Three-Pronged Strategy to Equitably Provide Planting Stock to Forest Farmers: Propagation Training, Seed Exchange, and Working with Wild Harvesters 

Partnering with the Yale School of the Environment and with funding from the USDA, this major, multi-year research and education project at Smokey House Center is designed to collaboratively develop, test and teach a diverse generation of forest farmers best practices for sustainably sourcing forest botanical planting stock, propagating plants in a nursery setting, cultivating them in the understory and bringing them to market.
