Organic Home Orchards

March 21, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

$35

Orchards have played an important role in communities for many centuries.  A home fruit orchard can conveniently provide tasty, fresh fruits for family consumption. One can also have cultivars that may not otherwise be readily available at grocery stores or local orchards. A well-established and maintained home orchard also enhances the appearance of the home landscape as specimen, border, espaliered or trellised plants, while producing food for the family.

This two-part workshop covers the requirements for growing fruit trees in the home garden.

Part 1: Classroom Education at WSU Spokane County Extension
We take you through the steps of planning your home orchard; recommended varieties; soil and cultural requirements; pruning and pest control including organic strategies.

Part 2: On-site Education
We will meet in Cheney, WA to see a home orchard in action.  There will be a tree planting demonstration and students will pick up their fruit tree.

Fee: $45 per person which includes one Cosmic Crisp apple tree start for your home orchard.

Register Online at Brown Paper Tickets

This workshop has limited space; attendees will be accepted first come, first serve basis.
