Sustainable Agriculture Solutions for Appalachia: Mulberry Agroforestry

Created with SARE support
Weston Lombard | 2018 | 20 pages

Mulberry is an extremely adaptable, vigorous deciduous tree species found worldwide from the humid tropics, to semi-arid lands, from mountain tops, to the hills of Appalachia.

With support from an NCR-SARE Farmer Rancher grant, mulberry grower Weston Lombard created this booklet about mulberries.

Lombard says whether you live in town on a small lot, or have hundreds of acres of farmland, you can benefit from planting a single mulberry tree...or a few hundred. A homeowner with a small backyard, a homesteader with a few acres of land, or commercial scale farmers can all incorporate mulberry trees into their sustainability efforts.
