Agroforestry and Food Safety

In my last post I talked about silvopasture practices, which involves balancing trees, livestock, and forage in the same location. One concern that can be raised about this, particularly if the trees are fruit or nut bearing, is the potential risk of having manure in the same environment due to the possibility of food contamination. It's not a simple issue, but Savanna Institute recently shared the video below discussing the situation and ways it can be managed. I thought it would also be worth putting here as well.
