Spring 2009

A day-long fruit tree and grafting workshop with Ken Taylor inspired 60 participants from as far away as the Niagara Escarpment and Lanark, Ontario. The La Pêche Organic Community Orchard (POCO) took root at this workshop!

Fall 2009

Second annual “hands-on survey” with the Mycologues amateurs de l’Outaouais for over 50 participants identified 50 mushroom species on the property.

Winter 2009

Eco Echo supported the first steps as members of La Pêche Organic Community Orchard made plans to develop a new source for locally grown fruit on the pesticide-free farmland and preparation began on a one acre plot.
