ALUS Demonstration Farms
Through the Norfolk ALUS Pilot Project, farmers in Norfolk County are eligible to enrol up to 20% of their worked (marginal) agricultural land to be restored into patches of healthy, functioning ecosystems. Examples of this include wetland creation in low, wet areas of a field where annually, optimal yields are not being reached; retiring field edges (headlands) adjacent to water courses to establish deep rooted, perennial grass and forb (Tallgrass Prairie) buffers; planting diverse flowering trees and shrubgs as windbreaks and living fences; etc.
