Karam Sheban is master's student at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies pursuing a Master of Forestry degree. Before coming to Yale, he spent three years working at Rural Action, a nonprofit organization in Athens, Ohio, developing landowner outreach and education programming around forest farming. He planned workshops and conferences; conducted landowner site visits; wrote non-timber forest product management plans; and helped in the design and implementation of a third-party certification system for the sustainable cultivation of forest crops called Forest Grown Verification. In this capacity Karam worked with regional forest farming technical support groups and universities, including the the Appalachian Beginning Forest Farmers Coalition, the National Agroforestry Center, Virginia Tech University, Penn State University, North Carolina State University, the Association for Temperate Agroforestry, and more. At Yale, Karam is studying sustainable forest management and temperate agroforestry systems.
