Interested in Fruit Tree Care?
A healthy fruit tree provides food for dozens of families, but many local trees need your help to do this. City Fruit’s intensive new program in urban fruit tree care begins July 2014. Classes and hands-on practice are guided by experienced instructors. Participants will learn the fundamentals of fruit tree care and then assist neighbors and community members in maintaining healthy trees.
