“Making a World of Difference”
Asheville, NC- What genius came up with the idea to spray deadly chemicals on our food anyway? An “agri”-culture that is healthy for the environment is ours for the sharing. Find out how to cultivate fruit and nut trees without poisons, and in return receive abundance, good health, beauty, and happiness, in a way that makes real economic sense. Let’s begin to implement agriculture as an art of nurturing our environment and enhancing ecological diversity for generations to come.
Put plainly, be prepared for postulations about pomological possibilities, purpose, production, preferences, proliferation, propagation, politics, position and planting preparation, in public places, protection, pests, pruning, picking, peddling, and processing all put into practice!

Just imagine…propagating your own plant material for little or no expense?...transforming fully grown established, barren, ornamental trees into fruit producing mega giants with 40 different varieties in 3 years? "Ridiculous.... absurd... How is this possible?!!!"
