    i've never heard of silvopasture before! what a wonderful concept, but also surprised to learn that it has been around for a long time. for example Hawaii. also fascinating that it is taken place already in Scotland as well

    yes i have heard of it. but like many didn't see it having a big potential and i didnt see how it was better than other fossil fuels in terms of CO2 production. from my research, if done right a full lifecycle can be realised that helps with the net zero initiative!
