Change is in the air and it seems to be a theme in this newsletter. Changing how we plant trees; going from balled & burlapped to bare root is actually a return to an old tried and true method. Thinking about urban fruit and nut trees in a new way is a change that can make our cities more sustainable. Urban permaculture can provide the quantifiable ecosystem services that we associate with the urban forest and give sustenance to the citizens who live there.
