Passing of a Friend: Michael Phillips

Michael Phillips, longtime proponent of organic orcharding, passed away unexpectedly on February 27. Michael envisioned how we could better grow and manage fruit trees and held a commitment to inspire and teach others to follow that vision. A contributor to a number of ELA programs, Michael will be greatly missed by all who knew him and by our community. The family has established a GoFundMe site with the hope of continuing Michael’s legacy.
