The Holistic Orchard: Tree Fruits and Berries the Biological Way

The Holistic Orchard by Michael Phillips has been selected as one of five gardening books to receive the American Horticultural Society’s 2012 Book Award. The March-April issue of The American Gardener will feature the winning books

“This richly illustrated, comprehensive guide is “like spending a weekend with the guru of organic orcharding. He helps his readers truly understand fruit trees and berry bushes by putting them in context as part of the larger ecosystem,” notes Kathy LaLiberte. “No other author covers the subject so completely, understands it so well, and still manages to make it accessible,” says Susan Appleget Hurst. “This book offers a fresh perspective on growing food in harmony with the natural world,” says W. Gary Smith, adding that “the depth and breadth of information is huge but not a bit intimidating.””
