Farmer Case Study: Mixed Species Orchard
February 1 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Little Dog Farm’s Regenerative Story
Feb. 1, 2024 :: 11am PT / 7pm UK
Soil Food Web-trained, Regenerative Soils & Living Compost Specialist, Jo Tobias, brings her clients, Cathy and Ian Finley of Little Dog Farm, to share their story with us. Three years ago, faced with a seemingly barren 50-acre landscape, Cathy and Ian embarked on a mission to rejuvenate their land for optimal fruit production. Their current plan involves cultivating fruit trees, consisting of about 50 varieties in total, of different types of apples, plums, peaches, nectarines, and crabapples. The fruit trees are grown alongside nitrogen-fixing trees, for a total of nearly 600 trees. Join us to see how the soil has undergone a remarkable transformation, is pulsating with vitality, and provides a promising sign for the orchard’s future.
