Stories of Apple Discovery Using Historical Research

February 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

University of Idaho’s Heritage Orchard Conference was established in 2019 with an in-person conference held at the Sandpoint Organic Agriculture Center. The conference attracted a diverse group of heritage tree fruit enthusiasts for a day of presentations ranging from heritage fruit exploration to apple identification. Since 2020, the conference has been organized as a free monthly webinar series, extending our reach to nearly 2,000 participants from 27 countries. The 2023-24 series has topics for all heritage apple enthusiasts, ranging from a basic understanding of fermented cider production to information on how to breed new apple varieties in your backyard.

Join us on Wednesday, February 21 for “Stories of Apple Discovery Using Historical Research.”

Presenters: David Benscoter — The Lost Apple Project; John Bunker – Maine Heritage Orchard; Jude MORP — Montezuma Orchard Restoration Project; Todd Little-Siebold — College of the Atlantic.

Moderator: Kyle Nagy — University of Idaho Sandpoint Organic Agriculture Center.
