Special guest Linwood Watson joins Brittany Sweeney to chat about how native trees and plants can boost your bottom line with heritage breeds. He hopes regardless of your plant skills- be it none or advanced, you will leave today's chat with some tips and tricks to strengthen your heritage breed efforts with 2 crux native trees- the American persimmon and American mulberry. Linwood Watson is an amateur orchardist with his family at the AspenSkye orchard in Fuquay-Varina, NC. His family is entering their 10th year in the homestead, specializing in hyperlocal, hard to ship items like mulberries, figs, and persimmons (American and Asian). Linwood is an enrolled member of the Haliwa-Saponi tribe and is old enough to have grown up on a small farm when farms were actually still small. From his work with the North Carolina Native Ethnobotany Project (www.ncnativeethnobotany.org), he has enjoyed intersecting traditional uses with Native plant advocacy. While Linwood and his family keep no animals, his tribal travels and ethnobotany work has shown that the most sustainable solution will at least partially involve Native plants/trees nourishing Heritage breeds. The importance of eventually reuniting these two realms is why Linwood has been a member of The Livestock Conservancy for several years and avidly enjoys hearing people’s voyages with animal husbandry. He appreciates the real world practical side of The Livestock Conservancy, especially how “to save an animal it needs a purpose." ​Big thank you to Manna Pro for sponsoring Marketing Mondays this year!
