Walden Heights Nursery & Orchard
Walden, VT 05873
This workshop covers just about all the species grown at Walden Heights Nursery, from apples to aronia. The emphasis will be on organic and sustainable methods, but will help growers of any practice. The workshop will start with an overview and lecture, and then proceed to an understanding of each species. This will include target crops, support plants like nitrogen fixers and animal habitat, and a discussion about the wider ecosystem. All levels of experience are welcome. Snacks and drinks provided, but some may want to bring a bag lunch. $75/person. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with interest.
The workshop will be taught by Todd Parlo, who holds a degree in education is the owner and operator of Walden Heights, a certified organic apple farm with the most diverse organic apple collection in the United States.
