Forgotten Fruits Summit
Posted April 2009
Dr. Gary Nabhan and the Renewing America’s Food Traditions (RAFT) alliance recently convened the national Forgotten Fruits Summit, which was held at the UW-Madison Arboretum on March 19th, 2009. Apple growers, historians, authors and advocates came together to talk about threatened apple varieties and discuss strategies for restoring apples in the landscape. The event concluded at Harvest Restaurant with a tasting of regional artisanal ciders paired with seasonal dishes. The tasting was not only pleasing to the palate, but also highlighted the potential for more value-added products from Wisconsin orchard fruits. Check out some of the photos and video from this event taken by Mark Dohm.
