We are pleased to announce the call for articles for Agroforester Newsletter for Fall 2021. The theme for the Fall 2021 newsletter is marketing agroforestry products.

If you have an interest in submitting an article relevant to the theme or any questions, please submit your article topic or any questions to email@example.com by August 9. Final articles will be due September 13. As always, we welcome ideas for future themes and suggestions for articles, and we welcome any input or feedback about the newsletter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
