NY Nut Growers Association Fall Meeting
Location: Natural History Preserve, 2515 Tower Mountain Road, Stamford, NY 12167
The fall meeting of the NY Nut Growers Association will take place in Stamford, NY, on Saturday, October 28. We will take a tour of the Michael Kudish Natural History Preserve in the morning. The tour will be led by Dr. Michael Kudish, Dave Turan, the Executive Director, and Karl Von Berg, a forester with the Watershed Ag Council,. They will talk about this beautiful natural preserve in Delaware County, and about proper thinning around nut trees to help them stay healthy and grow faster.
In the afternoon we’ll have talks on a Web Soil Survey to determine the suitability of planting nut and fruit trees; the nutritional and health value of nuts; on-going NYNGA projects; a preview of the Watershed Ag Council’s new website, “My Woodlot”; and post-harvest procedures for nuts. We'll also have a sample tasting and discussion of this season's nut crops.
