When Harry Came to Pow!Town

Harry talks apples.

Harry Burtonpartner Debbie from Salt Spring Island’s Apple Luscious Organic Orchards visited Powell River for a Skookum-sponsored two-day fundraiser for our new community apple press.

The Zen of apple pruning.

It was about apples, and a lot more. Harry talked about pruning, apple varieties, permaculture and much more, both at the Tuesday night presentation at the Unitarian Hall and the next morning at Little Wing Farm in Lund. We’re hoping to get Harry and Debbie back here again for some more in-depth workshops and hands-on skill-building in grafting, pruning, disease and distress management, and more. Stay tuned for more details.

The new community cider press is unveiled.
