Designing perennial polycultures (guilds) can be a big challenge. Furthermore, resources and information to help design perennial polycultures are few and far between. In order to address this research gap, The Apios Institute, an organization aiming at sharing experiences and information on perennial crop polyculture systems, was formed. The organization through a collaborative network of farmers, gardeners, and researchers, shares inspiration and fills critical knowledge gaps regarding the design and management of these systems. Additionally, it is a place for growers and enthusiasts to share personal experiences, observations, and research.
