    In this episode, we discuss all things peach-related with horticulturist Dario J. Chavez. Dario is an Associate Professor in the University of Georgia’s Department of Horticulture. Specializing in peach physiology and breeding, Dario is constantly uncovering new ways to maximize plant production and profit for the growers in the industry.

    Originally from Ecuador, Dario comes from four generations of farming. Through the years, he has developed his horticulture knowledge to the point where he became an expert in peach orchard management, tree longevity, irrigation practices, and genetics… 

    In this episode, we explore:

    • What happens when peach varieties lack genetic diversity. 
    • How temperature fluctuation affects plant health. 
    • How long it takes for peach trees to fully mature and bear fruit.

    Joining us in this episode to discuss homesteading is Dawn Gallop. Dawn is a mother of nine children, a farmer, nurse, artist, cheesemaker, canner, soapmaker, and beekeeper. As someone who wants to share her knowledge with others, Dawn has also taken on the role of an educator. She teaches people her skills both in person and online with her Youtube channel – fostering a whole new generation of homesteaders…

    Dawn had always had a dream of homesteading, and that dream came true in 1992. Since then, she and her family have cultivated their 30 acres of land with greenhouses, goats, bees, and chickens. Constantly learning new things, Dawn has expanded her farming and livestock knowledge to new heights in the 30 years since she began this journey. 

    Join the conversation now to hear Dawn talk about:

    • How to effectively raise goats, and why they are useful. 
    • How to choose the right chicken for your homestead. 
    • The ways that animal waste can contribute to the functioning of a farm.
