What is a “good” acorn?

Always glad to see friends, especially when they are toting 200 lbs of nuts!

Tim and Danielle have already amassed a nice cache of tree corns and we spent the day sorting, swapping stories,  and doing an inventory of NEACooperative equipment.

We also ran a float test of their most recent haul…nice fat reds!

DON’T MISS an opportunity this coming Saturday – October 22nd  to walk with Tim  at the Bradley Estate in Canton and talk about the New England Oak tree ecology we are so lucky to have.

Tim will  be sharing well-considered techniques and tools for finding and gathering “acorn-ocopia” of good eating acorns. You’ll be primed to bring an ancient and powerful nutrition to your table this season, picked by your own hand.

REGISTER at the Trustees website. See you there!
