Agroforestry/Alleycropping

Looking for a transitional form of agriculture as we try to wean ourselves off fossil-fuel based farming systems into smaller scaled, localised and sustainable ways of providing for ourselves? Enter, alleycropping — the practice of planting rows of trees (ideally on contour) through fields to create alleys, or corridors, of alternating trees and ground crops.

The Permaculture Research Institute of Australia have an eight-part video series explaining the ins and outs of alleycropping.
