Arbor Day at Rhoneymeade

  • Rhoneymeade, Inc. 177 Rimmey Road Centre Hall, United States (map)

ENJOY A BEAUTIFUL EVENING AT OUR FARM AND GARDEN

Activities begin at 6pm when we plant three new heritage apple varieties in the orchard, followed by a special screening of THE PERMACULTURE ORCHARD movie at 7pm. Cider and snacks provided.

“The Permaculture Orchard : Beyond Organic is a feature-length educational film that will teach you how to set up your own permaculture orchard at any scale. We recognize the limitations of the organic model as a substitute to conventional fruit growing, and want to propose a more holistic, regenerative approach based on permaculture principles. Based on 20 years of applied theory and trial and error, biologist and educator Stefan Sobkowiak shares his experience transforming a conventional apple orchard into an abundance of biodiversity that virtually takes care of itself. The concepts, techniques and tips presented in this film will help you with your own project, whether it is just a few fruit trees in your urban backyard, or a full-scale multi-acre commercial orchard.

Trained as a biologist and landscape architect, Sobkowiak has taught fruit production, landscape plants and design, and natural history of vertebrates at Montreal’s McGill University. He’s been teaching permaculture since 1995.”
