Linda Hoffman – “The Artist and the Orchard: A Memoir”

Artist Linda Hoffman saved an orchard and reshaped her life at Old Frog Pond in Harvard, Mass. When she moved to the farm, she didn’t know anything about apple-growing. More than 20 years later, the farm is one of the few organic pick-your-own orchards in New England, as well as a hub for a thriving community of visual artists, writers, and spiritual seekers. Hoffman, a Zen practitioner, and a breast cancer survivor, has now written about her extraordinary journey.
