About the project
The objective of the Agrof-MM project is to train European agricultural stakeholders in agroforestry practices. The project will give them the opportunity to familiarise themselves with agroforestry, and to improve their knowledge of it, in order to work towards the development of agroforestry in the Mediterranean and mountain regions of Europe. The Agrof-MM project both reinforces and completes the European AgroFE project, which ended in December 2015. It thus widens the geographical scope and improves the level of training of the AgroFE project, as well as addressing new stakeholders.
