Michael Phillips at Canterbury Shaker Village

Location: 288 Shaker Road, Canterbury, NH, 03224 | Authors: Michael Phillips

Canterbury Shaker Village and NOFA-NH are delighted to have Michael Phillips, widely acclaimed author of "The Apple Grower" and "The Holistic Orchard," conduct a workshop on holistic orchard health. This hands-on, day-long workshop will introduce participants to the concept of holistic orchard care by examining the subtleties of the biodiverse ecosystem that makes organic fruit-growing possible. After a morning of concept-based instruction on topics ranging from varietal and rootstock choices to spraying for systemic health, attendees will spend the afternoon in Canterbury’s historic apple orchard. In the orchard, the class will explore the insect and disease dynamics faced by New England growers through firsthand examination of an orchard in the spring bloom or early post bloom period. Cost to participate is $75 for non-members or $60 for NOFA, Canterbury Shaker Village or Concord Food Co-op members.
