  • Reflection Question
    Land Sinks Learn More about Silvopasture
    Had you heard of the term "silvopasture" before now? After learning more about it, what do you think is the biggest advantage of silvopasture?

    I have never heard of Silvopasture before this EcoChallenge, but now that I learned about it, it makes sense.  If you have happier ANYTHING (not just cows), you will always have better outcomes.  It makes sense to me to use the same parcel of land for multiple uses and hope farmers start implementing some of these ideas.
