Solutions Journalism Network

Solutions journalism is news about how communities and organizations are responding to social and environmental problems. This collection contains solutions stories about how silvopasture is being used in different regions. While cutting the emissions of conventional farming and sequestering huge amounts of carbon, silvopasture also revitalizes farms as is seen in places like Mexico and Italy where farmers are adopting silvopasture to fight soil degradation, increase biodiversity and regenerate the land. US farmers have lagged in adopting this practice - currently only 1 percent of farms in the US use the technique. Still, knowledge of this ancient practice is slowly spreading around the world, showing that it is a relatively technology-free way to make a large impact.
