Organic Vegie/Fruit Growers Disc Group – Pakenham Upper
August 11, 2016 @ 1:15 pm - 3:30 pm
You are invited to attend the next organic veggie/fruit growers discussion group at Max & Toni Myers.
Max & Toni have been growing apples organically for decades & have a great story on the reasons they converted to organic apple growing! Some of their trees are close to 100 years old and are heritage varieties which lots of people wouldn’t have heard about. They still pick their own apples and sell them, and also make juice and apple cider vinegar. Max & Toni will talk about their farm & show us some of his inventions and organic remedies. They will give us a pruning demonstration and also talk about recent challenges with deer and European wasps. This will be a very interesting afternoon.
Where: Max & Toni Myers orchard, 104 Harvie Rd, Pakenham Upper
When: Thursday 11th of August 2016
Time: 1:15pm for a cuppa 1:30 – 3:30pm – Discussion & farm walk followed by afternoon tea
