Michael Phillips workshop at Tooley’s Trees IS FULL

November 18, 2017 9am to 3pm

Cost: $60 includes lunch

Orcharding legend Michael Phillips will present an all day workshop at our farm in Truchas, New Mexico on November 18.2017.

Fascinating biological connections make for a healthy orchard ecosystem. All insect pests and fruit tree disease – whether fungal or bacterial – have launching points and particular timing. Healthy trees address these challenges first and foremost from within. Growers utilizing an ongoing investment in soil nutrition and biodiversity set the stage for gentler organic sprays to grow a successful fruit crop.

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. We’ll wrap up this day with important marketing perspectives for selling good fruit.

This is a rain or shine event. We will be spending most of the day on the land. Boots or other enclosed protective footwear and warm clothing are recommended. Please bring a water bottle.

Michael will also be one of the speakers at the Quivira Coalition’s annual conference in Albuquerque on Nov. 15-17, 2017. This conference is internationally renowned for bringing together thought leaders, agrarian innovators, and land stewards from across the Southwest and around the world for three days of provocative plenary presentations, networking and special events focused on the intersection of agriculture and conservation. All ranchers, farmers, conservationists, public agency personnel, other land stewards, business people, teachers and students, and interested members of the general public are invited to attend. Scholarships are available for students and beginner agrarians attending for the first time. Go to  https://quiviracoalition.org/conference-registration/ for more information and to register for either or both events.

Autumn 2017

We are open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays 8-5.

Please keep watering your trees and shrubs until there is measurable snow on the ground. Its hard to say how often- it depends on how well your soil holds moisture and how much precipitation we get. Dig down a few inches with your hand or a trowel. If the soil is still moist, you can wait a few days and check again. Its ok to let them get a little dry between waterings.

Thanks!
