I will be speaking at White Square Fine Arts and Books, 86 Cottage Street, Easthampton, Massachusetts, Sunday, August 11 at 2 p.m. My topics will include early apple growing in New England; heirloom varieties; John Chapman, aka Johnny Appleseed (few people realize that he grew up in western Massachusetts); and what to expect from the 2013 fresh harvest.
The event takes place during the opening weekend of Park Hill Orchard’s Art in the Orchard.
