MESA Spends Time with Pietree's Scott Miller

posted Sep 19, 2017, 10:19 AM by Jotham Oliver

We had a fantastic day at Pie Tree Orchard! Students took copious amounts of notes and peppered Scott Miller, Head Orchardist, with questions. They learned the impacts of climate/weather on the crops, such as how mild weather can interrupt/prevent dormancy, leading to a failed crop; grafting techniques, tree biology and so much more. They enjoyed picking some Cortlands and Macs and then returning to school for reflection and ....their first experiential assessment!
