The Community Orchardist newsletter serves as a clearinghouse for those constantly-evolving ideas observed on the "alternative orcharding" front. Our emphasis is always on ecosystem health -- whether we're talking about a community orchard or backyard trees that thrill the grandkids.

The lessons of each new season add to our collective knowledge base, provided we take time to pay attention to Nature's insistent teachings. The current editions of Apple Grower (2005) and Holistic Orchard (2011) benefit from this online opportunity to stay updated to cutting edge thinking in the orcharding world.

DVD: Holistic Orcharding with Michael Phillips
Michael's Holistic Orcharding DVD guides you through the orchard year.

Stay informed about issues important to orchardists and backyard fruit growers by signing up to receive this newsletter (and tell us more about your doings with fruit trees on the sign-up form, if you wish). Please send along useful orchard management insights that you feel should be shared with other community orchardists (contact Michael). Part of the fun of having written Apple Grower and Holistic Orchard is serving as a clearinghouse of information that helps all of us to grow the good fruit.

Names will not be exchanged with other lists, and unsubscribing is as easy as simply asking.

We're delighted this newsletter can be available "for free" to all who care about growing healthy fruit. Just like your favorite public radio station, however, we need financial support to cover direct costs. Please take a moment to check out this intriguing story about the Golden Apples of the Hesperides . . . and then do your bit. The next edition of the newsletter will be forthcoming once we hear from twenty folks committed to seeing this networking effort continue. Thanks!
