Title: Integrating Nut Trees into Contemporary Plantings: An Informative Webinar
When: Monday, November 14th at 5:00 PM
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Yates County is hosting an informative webinar titled "Integrating Nut Trees into Contemporary Plantings" on Monday, November 14 at 5:00 PM. Temperate nut trees have been feeding New York for thousands of years. Nut trees can provide a marketable crop, climate mitigation, and resiliency benefits when integrated into contemporary plantings along with other crops. Samantha Bosco, Ph.D. (Cornell ’22) will present how chestnuts and hazelnuts are leading the way in NY for a new era of climate-smart agriculture. Chestnut and hazelnut basic growing requirements, design considerations for alley cropping, silvopasture systems, and commercial industry prospects will be the main topics covered.  

Samantha Bosco is the agroforestry and nut cropping program planner for Cornell Cooperative Extension. She focused her doctoral research on the role of temperature nut trees in Haudenosaunee food sovereignty and climate-smart agriculture in what is today known as New York State. Bosco is a former Phipps Conservatory Botany in Action Fellow and current Agroforestry Program Work Team member.
