Hello, Palermo Community!

Grandma’s Apple Orchard on Zoom

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 on Wednesday, March 24, at 7 p.m. via Zoom and Facebook Live and 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.”
