DrylandWFS is focused on the development of regenerative agroforestry systems. Through the assemblance of specific templates regarding canopy structure, species and successional diversity. We are developing highly efficient closed-loop farming practices.
– Extensive research and development towards uncommon species with crop potential and/or supportive potential for commercial crops.
– Varietal development with sub-tropical and cool temperate species. Everything from fruiting trees and industrial shrubs, to vines and medicinals. Research + Development
– Passive, long-term creek restoration using various check dams to slow and spread water.
– Naturalization of fruiting crops native to mediterranean regions. Primarily: pomegranate, olive, fig, mulberry, grape, pistacio, almond, apricot, elderberry, walnut, carob, date palm, strawberry tree, pecan. Secondarily: pistacio, mandarin, other citrus spp., persimmon, avocado.
