Living Library Project

Today, we collected a few of the late summer fruits from around the property. Several of these trees are over one hundred years old, dating back to the early days of the ranch. Sadly, many of these historic fruit trees have seen better days, and we are starting a project to help preserve them. This winter, we plan to make grafts from our aging trees and put them on new root stock to cultivate a new Post Ranch orchard an preserve an important part of our agricultural heritage. We hope to extend this "living library" to include other rare varieties from homesteads and Missions along the Central Coast.
