Call for Submissions – special edition on fruit trees and orchards
The March 1 edition of the Festival of the Trees will be hosted by Peg at Orchards Forever, and submissions are due by February 27. Email links to amberapple at gmail dot com, or use the online submission form.
I’d like to try and adhere to a theme of fruit trees and orchards… but virtually anything that is even loosely connected to that theme is welcome! Gardening and growing, horticulture, heirloom fruits, food and recipes, environmental and conservation issues, folklore and mythology, travel, what have you!
Hosting a festival can be a lot of work even without the added obligation of finding links appropriate for a theme, so please help Peg out by sending along anything you happen across that seems appropriate. Also, you might consider visiting a local orchard and blogging about it. For folks in the northern hemisphere, this might not seem like the best time for that, but actually things might be pretty interesting right now, as the trees try to survive the winter and the teams of migrant pruners make their rounds. And if you have a few fruit trees of your own, maybe they’d appreciate a little extra attention…
