What are we doing?
Occupation apple tree is an idea in progress. Started January 2012, taking on neglected fruit trees on Vancouver Island. One apple tree, led to another, to over 100 trees, mostly apple and plum, with a couple pear and fig. And, Together with, "Sonny", work was started on 150 apple trees .We also have pear trees in Agassiz, Harrison, and Chilliwack; red and black currents, plums and apples in the west Kootanies. 3 acres of farm land full of blackberries, to be developed in the Frazer Valley. There is more and we are now preparing to take on any agricultural land anywhere in BC. We do the work freely, without the use of toxins. Mushroom picking is almost over, I will be working in Agassiz ,Chilliwack and West Sannich in Dec. The goals of Occupation Apple Tree, food self reliance in ten years locally, provincially, nationally; self reliance in growing processing and distribution. This appears to be more than a few people job so we are looking for lots of help. The job of learning how to post this up on the web, making connections with those who have trees or land, starting the work, finding interested humans,who would love to do this work freely, picking apples, cutting brush has kept me occupied. This week I will be doing brush and tree work as well as some apple picking on Vancouver Island.
