Synopsis:
Hedgerows and grassed waterways are increasingly being planted on farms and can have multiple functions: they can serve as habitat for beneficial insects, pollinators and other wildlife; provide erosion protection and weed control; stabilize waterways; serve as windbreaks; reduce non-point source water pollution; increase surface water infiltration; buffer from pesticide drift, noise, odors and dust; increase biodiversity; and provide aesthetic resource.

This webinar will exhibit a diversity of projects, focusing on established practices and Sam Earnshaw's lessons learned from 20 years of planting habitat on farms in California's Central Coast region. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.

About the Speaker:
Sam Earnshaw was the Central Coast Program Coordinator for Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF) from 1992 to 2011.  He has planted over 300 miles of hedgerows, windbreaks, riparian plantings, grassed waterways and filter strips in California and is the author of Hedgerows for California Agriculture: A Resource Guide. Prior to his full-time employment with CAFF, he farmed organically for over a decade.
