3.10.17 | Michael Phillips's Talk on "Growing Healthy Fruit Trees and Berries The Biological Way"

Berry and fruit production is of great value to many home gardeners, as well as small-scale and part-time market growers. The primary role of orchardists and gardeners is to build system health. Embracing forest edge ecology is critical when it comes to getting a leg up on fruit tree diseases and addressing pest challenges. Equally telling is the nutrient density—and flavor!—of the fruit we then harvest for our families and communities.
