CIDER DAYS: Orchard Care For Homeowners with John Bunker
About This Event
John Bunker is an American legend when it comes to Apples and Apple Trees. He is the founder of the mail order nursery Fedco Trees, a division of the cooperative Fedco Seeds. John is well known for his art which can be found in every Fedco catalogue. For most of his life, he has worked to preserve rare old apple varieties from across Maine and the New England region. He founded the Maine Heritage Orchard in Unity, Maine in 2012. This orchard is magnificent and a must visit when in the area!
His most recent book Apples and the Art of Detection: Tracking Down, Identifying and Preserving Rare Apples (2019) is yet another masterful book by this author. It is an undeniable resource for homeowners and apple detectives who wish to identify their found trees.
This one hour talk is geared towards small orchards of 1-10 tree. It is the perfect fit for homeowners or stewards. Help your trees bear fruit, for pies and cidermaking!
