Note – At times there is a lot of distortion on David’s end in this interview. I never head it during the recording. It isn’t constant please excuse the few occurrences as the content of the show is exceptional.
David Consolvo has been growing his orchard in Virgina for over 23 years now. He originally began planting his orchard in a quest for better health and nutrition. Over the years he has found it to help his health both physical and mental in other ways simply by the joy of working in it, watching his trees grow and having the security of food close at hand.
Over the years Dave has also become a prepper and is a long time listener of our show. He has a root cellar he calls a “fruit cellar” and has integrated his ability to produce food into his emergency planning.
