The fencing grant received from the Lillian Goldman Foundation was gratefully accepted and speedily used. The Dunlap Block for the baby trees is fenced and gated, and the 17–acre Botner Block is fenced and sports five beautiful gates. The fence is an 8–foot tall deer–proof fence built by Statewide Fence Company, and it is absolutely beautiful.
The permit for the agricultural well was received in May 2017. Thanks to another generous donation from Cary Fowler and Amy Goldman, drilling can begin in early summer 2017. Planning, plotting and surveying for the orchard in the Botner Block is underway. Our “revised” goal is to have the irrigation system installed and the young trees transplanted to the Botner Block in the fall 2017 and winter 2018. We are longing to have these 4,900 apple trees planted where they will develop into a strong, mature orchard to be shared with today’s orchardists and generations to come.
We are looking for help from engineers and water and soil experts to develop a master plan that minimizes our impact on the local aquafer and maximizes collection and storage of rainfall.
