Hello, Palermo Community!

Grandma’s Apple Orchard – Zoom Presentation

The Palermo Community Library will host a virtual presentation by John Bunker titled, “Grandma’s Apple Orchard: The perfect orchard with only 12 trees. How did she do it?” The event will be held Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 7 p.m. via Zoom and Facebook Live. This is free to the public.

Bunker, a Colby alumnus, was presented the 2019 Commissioner's Distinguished Service Award by Gov. Janet Mills and Commissioner Amanda Beal for saving Maine's apple heritage. He has also authored two books: “Apples and the Art of Detection: Tracking Down, Identifying, and Preserving Rare Apples”, and “Not Far From the Tree: A Brief History of the Apples and the Orchards of Palermo Maine, 1804-2004.”

The link for the Zoom meeting can be found on the library’s website and Facebook page. For more information, call 993-6088 or email palermo@palermo.lib.me.us or visit palermo.lib.me.us.
