They'll demonstrate overall orchard planning, building diversity into plantings, breed selection, practical fruit growing techniques, and soil and plant health. Pru and Sharon will lead participants in an informative and experiential process, using their property, Wild Browse Farm, to demonstrate the importance of a holistic approach to orchard care.

Wild Browse Farm's orchard is a model of diversity, containing over 10 species of fruit, including kiwi, sand cherries and paw paw, and more traditional tree and small fruits like apples, pears, peaches, plums, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and grapes.
