Planting Habitat on Farms: Design, Techniques, Issues

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 and groundwater pollution; increase surface water infiltration; buffer from pesticide drift, noise, odors, and dust; act as living fences and boundary lines; increase biodiversity; and provide an aesthetic resource.

This presentation will show a diversity of projects, focusing on established practices and Sam Earnshaw’s lessons learned from 20 years of planting habitat on farms, and will be follow by a question and answer session.


Sam Earnshaw was the California Central Coast Program Coordinator for Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF) from 1992 to 2011
