Regenerative Orchardist, Groveton, New Hampshire

Michael Phillips is renowned for helping people grow healthy fruit using herbal protocols. The community orchard movement that he helped found at provides a full immersion into the holistic approach to orcharding. His Lost Nation Orchard is part of a medicinal herb farm in northern New Hampshire. Michael is the author of The Apple Grower and The Holistic Orchard which recently received Garden Book of the Year honors from the American Horticultural Society. He teamed up with his wife Nancy to write The Herbalist’s Way, to explore the many paths whereby herbalists find their green niche. Michael’s latest, Mycorrhizal Planet: How Fungi and Plants Work Together to Create Dynamic Soils, will rock you! Here we have a grower embracing soil biology excited to share the science relevant to all farmers.
