Meet Harrison Van Meekeren from Lakeville, Nova Scotia... our young grower featured in the March 15, 2019, issue of Good Fruit Grower magazine.

Harrison is helping his family transition to high-density systems on their farm and is experimenting with planting cover crops to improve soil nutrition. "To me, a bag of cover crop seed is worth way more than a bag of fertilizer," he said. "I think we need to grow ecosystems and let nature take care of some of the problems we face."
