Stefan will discuss his experience of transforming 5 acres out of his 12 acre property into a permaculture-inspired “u-pick” orchard. Utilizing an innovative interplanting model, Stefan is producing over 100 cultivars of apples, 18 cultivars of pears, Asian pears, plums, cherries, hardy kiwi, grapes, mulberries, gooseberries, red and black currants, Saskatoon berries, raspberries, strawberries, and a whole range of herbs and perennial vegetables.
This workshop is offered in partnership with Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario (EFAO). It is separate, but in conjunction with Eco Farm Day and so can be registered for separately. Registration is available here or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
