      Michael Phillips at Virginia Biological Farming Conference
      Doubletree Hotel, Richmond VA

      Understanding the timing and underlying principles for growing healthy fruit becomes clear when set within the framework of the orchard calendar. Major insect challenges can be resolved safely and organically when you perceive who, what and when. Dealing with disease from a holistic perspective requires an in-depth understanding of nutritional cause-and-effect. Biodiversity brings in untold connections. Appreciating such subtleties makes our time on this precious planet all the more fascinating. Tweaking the “systems approach” learned today means taking responsibility to match the challenges you face at your locale.

      Michael Phillips at Virginia Biological Farming Conference
      Doubletree Hotel, Richmond VA

      Successfully growing fruit for your family becomes straightforward when you narrow the big picture down to getting the basics right. Harvesting sunlight through smart pruning is what renews fruit buds. Fungal disease becomes manageable with wise variety choices and enhanced soil biology. Even major insect challenges can be resolved safely when you perceive who, what, and when. All sorts of fruits—from apples and pears to peaches and cherries and onward to berries—make for a diverse home orchard planting. Confidence to integrate tree fruits into your landscape begins with embracing biodiversity and knowing how to build system health.
