June 25, 2013
10:00am - 5:00pm
Morning Session: Connecticut College, 270 Mohegan Avenue, New London, CT
Afternoon Session: Hidden Brook Gardens, 551 Colonel Ledyard Highway, Ledyard, CT
Michael Phillips organic appled growing expert will be returning to Connecticut for a second Advanced Workshop with NOFA OLC.
Understanding the underlying principles for growing healthy fruit becomes clear when walking through an orchard with Michael Phillips at the height of the growing season. Major insect challenges can be resolved safely and organically when you perceive who, what and when. Dealing with disease from a holistic perspective requires an in-depth understanding of nutritional cause-and-effect. Biodiversity brings in untold connections. The challenges you face at your locale will become far more manageable as you build a holistic system that keeps trees and berry plantings healthy from the get-go.
NOFA Organic Land Care Program hosts between two and four Advanced Workshops each year for Accredited Professionals to earn Continuing Education Credits and reconnect with one another.
