Juneberry, cornelian cherry, and lingonberry are just a few fruits that are not well-known but have delectable flavors and are easy to grow. This webinar will describe the flavor and the cultivation of these and other uncommon fruits. These fruit plants have little need for spraying for pest control; in some cases annual pruning is not even required. Some of the fruits are borne on plants that also are ornamental, so are perfect for “luscious landscaping” of home grounds. With proper handling, some of these fruits have good market potential, especially for organic and specialty markets.

Utilizing a highly interactive farming system to maximize production for vegetables, fruit and animals, Many Hands Organic Farm is ever evolving.  We will discuss our three-year transition to total no-till for our three acres of vegetables, our ever more intricate inter-sowing of cover crops, and complex animal rotations with the vegetable and fruit crops.  This system is based on Albrecht-style mineral balancing, utilization of fertility drenches and foliar sprays, and maximum soil coverage.
