    Shahar Caspi, 46, and his dog Maggie walk through a cherry tree orchard in Oregon House on Tuesday, April 14, 2014. He has revitalized the fruit trees and hopes to get a crop this year. Caspi tends acres of gardens, fruit trees and a commercial vineyard in the hamlet of Oregon House in the foothills between Marysville and Grass Valley. His job since 2012 is raising food year round for his community and bringing perfect wine grapes to harvest Ð all without tilling, and with little to zero added water.
