Event description

Description

Helena Moncrieff is an enthusiast and advocate for the often-ignored fruit trees that dot city streets and yards. This devotion sees her regularly slipping into other people’s backyards, touring community orchards, and entering canning competitions. In her travels, writings and talks, she examines our relationship with food, wondering how these life-giving trees transitioned from subsistence staples to raccoon fodder. Helena shows us that while the bounty of apples is great, reconnecting with nature and our community is the real prize.

Please note that paid parking is now in effect, however TBG members park for free.
