Capitol Press

Steve Cole intends to devote more time to his orchard in the Greenbluff district northeast of Spokane since he recently retired from his day job as a physical therapist.

As owner of the only certified organic tree fruit orchard in Spokane County, Cole says he was inspired to pay more attention to his soil at the state’s annual Tilth Conference at the Wenatchee Convention Center, Nov. 11-13.
