Organic Orchard Planning and Fruit Tasting
All-day intensive workshop featuring Michael McConkey
of Edible Landscaping and Alexis Zeigler from Living Energy Farm

When: Saturday, October 10, 9 AM to 4 PM

Where: 912 Woodfolk Dr., Charlottesville Va, 22902
Cost: $50, email for possible scholarship. Checks made payable to Living Energy Farm


Contact: Debbie Piesen, livingenergyfarm@gmail.com, 540-205-0433. Mail checks to
217 Fredericksburg Ave, Louisa VA 23093 (This is NOT the workshop location!)

Workshop participants will learn how to grow a bounty of rich, delicious fruit from plants that
require little tending, and we will have a variety of disease resistant fruits on hand for people
to taste! Have you ever tasted jujubes, muscadines, persimmons, homegrown pomegranates,
filberts, homegrown almonds? Here's your chance to taste these and other fruits, and to learn
how to grow your own organic orchard as well!

It takes many years to learn what works and what does not work in the realm of organic
orcharding. Save yourself those years -- learn which trees are best, and how to take care of
them. Michael McConkey has been running Edible Landscaping for 35 years, a successful
nursery that focuses on “less care” plants that don't need pesticides to thrive. Alexis Zeigler has
lived on fruit-producing farms all of his life, and teaches propagation classes every spring.

The workshop will teach you about growing naturally disease and insect resistant fruits, as well as  organic management techniques for conventional fruits and nuts. (Note, this workshop is intended to teach the home grower how to grow the maximum amount of food on trees with the least effort. We are not experts on commercial orcharding.)
