My Food Forest Presentation from the Recent Earthworks Workshop — 9 Comments

  1. One rootball full of win here! I do hope some on my FB list gets a gander too.

    I am so glad I saw the part on propagating by cuttings! Not only a fine specimen ๐Ÿ˜‰ but also a method I NEVER SAW, and I used to have my grandpa’s horticulture dictionary with all sorts of information on where stuff grew and what they look like, some entries with what yields it had.

    • A shop in Breckenridge CO. Next time I get a chance Ill post the name of the maker I do know it is made in the USA.

  2. Thanks Jack, Nick, and Josiah ; This video brings up good memories. I had a great time, met some wonderful people, and learned a lot. Thanks for all the hospitality………..Scott

  3. Jack et al,

    A fine show, filled with great advice. It doesn’t stroke the harpies like politics, but if it gives just a small boost to finding 10 times as many smart, young farmers and horticulturists it’ll do more for the future than any politics. It’s a shame to see so little commentary response. Looks like a long haul.

  4. Thanks Jack and the production crew for publishing this excellent information, the workshop attendees are so privileged to be able share a unique experience for the whole weekend.
    I especially liked the planting apple pips segment to give more diversity in eating new types of apples. ” Montys surprise” was found as a seedling tree on the side of a countryside road in New Zealand and has some impressive eating qualities.

    Thanks again for posting the video, to illustrate we need more diversity in our landscape

  5. great video. I visited Bob Wells nursery a few weeks ago and told Rob you mentioned them on the show. They’re great folks and work really closely with you to get even a small order. I’m sure they’re thankful to have drawn your attention. Can we hope for an MSB discount? He said he would look you up and said he’d recently had a huge order from a prepper. Very keen.. and FWIW they’re digging trees for bare root sales now.
