Staying Current 

Our Community Orchardist newsletter serves as a clearinghouse for constantly evolving ideas observed on the healthy orcharding front. The emphasis is always on ecosystem health – whether we're talking about a community orchard or backyard trees for the family.

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 in michael's orchard trilogy benefit from this online opportunity to stay updated to cutting edge thinking in the orcharding world.

Please send along those intriguing tidbits that come across your tree radar to share in future articles. Collaboration between growers is how we move ahead!
