Open field visit to agroforestry on swales in Heuvelland

On the 9th of April, a field visit was organised in Heuvelland, where over the past few years experiments took place with agroforestry systems on contour swales, as a means to control erosion on-site.

Other benefits are clear: increased biodiversity, connecting forest fragments, better water management, etc.

About 40 interested people attended this open field visit, ranging from farmers, neighbours and local authorities to policy advisors and teachers. Local press also reported about this regional event.
