Fruit Trees 101: Fruit Tree Grafting

Bench Grafting and Top Working

A four part series on fruit trees.  Thinking of growing your own fruit trees at home? Already growing fruit trees you want to make sure are well cared for? This class will cover the ten most important things to know in order to ensure healthy trees and an abundant harvest here in the Pacific Northwest.

The lecture will cover site requirements & prep, how to select a good tree, general care & maintenance requirements of different fruits, pollination needs, common pests, and much more. Then we will move outside to explore these same concepts through multiple hands-on activities.
