LUKE RUFFNER ROBINSON from Montana Fruit Trees

Luke

An aspiring architect, Luke interned on a farm in Portugal to design a bathroom and became fascinated by the farm’s ability to mimic nutrient and energy cycling in forests. Luke withdrew his architecture plans and began research in Systems Ecology. Luke holds an MS in Systems Ecology from the University of Montana and a BA in drawing and drafting.

Golden Seeds from Luke:

“Actually that was what got me really interested in, I call it the systems based approach to growing food, you know, which I think, or get organic can fall into that permaculture, regenerative, agriculture. I mean, there’s all these words, but I think, I think anytime you’re using a systems based approach, I think that’s really, when you start to see benefit in productivity, in all of these different properties that can emerge from the system beneficially, I think.”

“I want to just tell what any of your listeners that might be, that might, that they’re listening to what I was saying about specifically watering towards the end of the year. You do want to give them one, all the trees you’ll cut them off. You’ll cut the water off. I mean, in our climate in August, but then towards maybe after leaf drop, give them a final drink to get them through the winter”
