In this episode of Good and Decent, Senior Producer Josh and Associate Video Producer Jane share the story of David Fried and his tree nursery in Elmore, Vermont, called Elmore Roots. David has been doing this for over 40 years, and it all started with the desire to grow fruits and nut varieties that were once believed impossible to grow in the hillsides of Vermont.

Gooseberries, seaberries, haskap, lingonberries, and kiwiberries are just a few of the many berries, fruit, and nut trees that the team at Elmore Roots tends to.
