Long-Time Organic Advisor Amigo Bob Featured in National Geographic

Amigo Bob is one of the stalwart organizers of the annual EcoFarm conference and a renowned organic farming advisor. He stewards a collection of heirloom perennial fruits—from apples to walnuts—and makes cuttings available through the Felix Gillet Institute. Amigo Bob’s repository of heirloom fruits recently caught the attention of National Geographic, which published a photo essay on the rich genetic diversity he is protecting. The piece focuses on the importance of these locally-adapted species in the face of climate change and increasing drought.
