Additional Information

A tour of Michael Phillips orchard through the seasons. Every farm and homestead can enjoy the timeless pleasure of an organic fruit orchard. Yet this can also be challenging, because few people today have the depth of knowledge and experience needed to produce healthy trees and nutritious, great-tasting fruit without the use of harmful and expensive chemicals. The answer is to create a more holistic orchard: one that emphasizes biological health and diversity from the microscopic fungi in the soil to the beneficial insects, companion plants, and the birds and wildlife that together form a complete and living orchard ecosystem. In other words, an orchard that works with nature rather than fighting against it. Michael Phillips is a pioneering author and orchardist whose books include The Holistic Orchard and The Apple Grower. In this video, he leads viewers through a year in his own orchard, demonstrating basic horticultural skills like grafting and pruning, but also revealing groundbreaking and field-tested strategies for growing apples and other tree fruits not just organically, but holistically.

I pored over The Holistic Orchard this winter and came away with dozens of thought-provoking suggestions for improving my young forest garden. This DVD is the perfect accompaniment, mostly rehashing the same information, but providing visual reference points (and also some new tips). It's also well-indexed so I'll easily be able to go back and review various sections at a later date.

In the interest of full disclosure, I was given a free review copy, but would definitely have watched all 5 hours anyway. I might have waited and hoped a used copy would pop up, though, since $50 is a lot of money.
I bought this dvd for my husband's birthday as he is now 2+ years into his own orchard. I admit thinking the dvd price was too high but I'm glad I bought it; he told me "I did really good!". I would highly recommend this dvd to those new as the orchard hobbyist. He covers a lot of topics and explains things in a slow, well laid out format and the filming is good.
If you want to learn about fruit trees then you will here! His DVD is also awesome! Thanks so much!
