    What will I learn in the workshop?

    This is a pretty unique workshop! It seems no-one has classes on the topic of creating your own home orchard. It can be overwhelming with choices. However, establishing your orchard this year and over the next 5+ years will spread the work load out and help you to become an expert in fruits, nuts, berries and vines. 

    This is designed to be a hands-on workshop. You'll get to pick up tools and materials, ask questions, and see the entire process. We are dedicated to sustainable organic practices. We could add this in the title of each class, but its easier to just say all of our classes ONLY teach organic practices. 

    • Participate in a walk-through of our 1 acre front-yard orchard. It is one model of a food forrest. There are about 40 fruit and nut trees that establish the upper canopy, while under and between the trees are plated 10+ grapes vines, 12+ varieties of berries, rhubarb, asparagus, herbs, flowers, and veggies. 
    • Design considerations for 1/4 to 1 to 5+ acres 
    • Plan harvests according to your availability. Some like to harvest at certain times of the year or maximize time by coordinating fruiting all at one time or have a continuous harvest throughout spring, summer, and fall. 
    • Selection of varieties that fit your scale, tastes, use in the kitchen, etc
    • Where you can go to get quality plants. We've worked with dozens of nurseries around the country and have found some that have excellent products, prices, and will replace dead plants (even if it was your fault).
    • Revise your design & add layers under your trees to add berries and vines 
    • How to prepare and plant your trees, vines, and berries so they survive during the first hot summer and freezing winter. 
    • Learn how the basics of pruning & training trees, canes, and vines.
    • You will leave with ideas to plant this year for the first time or ideas to add onto your existing landscape/orchard/garden
