Plan to come and participate in AFTA’s 13th NAAC.

Since the first conference in 1989 in Guelph, Ontario, the NAAC is one of the most important opportunities to share information, collaborate and network on a variety of agroforestry topics, including shelterbelts, riparian buffers, silvopasture, alley cropping, forest farming and more.

Up to 200 researchers and practitioners from across North America will meet for three days of keynote addresses, technical sessions and field tours.

In 2013, the NAAC field tours will highlight agroforestry practices and issues in the context of Prince Edward Island (PEI) and, more generally, the Canadian Atlantic region.

Historic Charlottetown, the capital city of the province of PEI, is the birthplace of Canadian Confederation. Prince Edward Island is a province of gently rolling countryside and beautiful seascapes and it is very attractive and welcoming to tourists.

PEI’s economy is based on its productive agriculture, its fisheries and tourism. It boasts many superior golf courses and mouth-watering lobster and other seafood.

PEI is joined to the Canadian mainland by the 13 kilometre Confederation Bridge and convenient air connections can be made to Charlottetown.

The venue for the NAAC will be the University of PEI, which features excellent meeting rooms, comfortable and affordable accommodations and easy access to the city.
