There is no better way to welcome spring and get a jump start on food growing than diving into fruit tree maintenance and care. We are hosting more class series this year in order to advance connectivity and skill sets over the course of the season. Our fruit tree series, “The Art of Growing Organic Fruit,” is a 6-part seasonal workshop series exploring the cultivation of fruit trees, shrubs & other perennial edibles for our Northern climate. Each workshop in the series will focus on building skills to tend our plants with a Permaculture approach including pruning, propagation, grafting, planting, design, maintenance, organic pest/disease management, harvest, crop swaps, winter clean-up & more.

The first class of the series kicks off this Sunday March 11th from 2-4pm, “Dormant Pruning and Plant Propagation.” In this class you will learn the art of pruning & also the magic of multiplying your plants by taking dormant hardwood cuttings from many incredible edible & medicinal varieties like currants, elderberry, grapes, roses and others. We will send every participant home with cuttings of their own to get started.

If you cannot make the first class but want to come future class dates mark these on your calendar: 4/22, 5/6, 7/15, 8/5 and 9/9 from 2-4pm in the Tiny Diner garden. Sign up for all the classes with our series discount price or just sign up for one. Spaces are limited. Sign up on our website here.
