Growing a Holistic, Homestead, Heirloom Apple Orchard

A practical presentation and interactive discussion on site selection, planting, pruning, grafting and holistically nurturing heirloom and disease resistant apple varieties. Particular attention will be paid to practices that encourage lower maintenance and easy orchard management. The focus will be on the homestead scale orchard, not commercial, although many of the same principles will still apply.
