July 2022 General Meeting

More and more North Americans are planting fruit trees in their gardens, in parks and on company land. But, often new growers are disappointed. Without proper care, young fruit trees are vulnerable to pest and disease problems and may produce poor quality fruit. What many new growers don’t realize is that in order to thrive, fruit trees need skilled hands-on care including correct annual pruning, fertility management and pest and disease prevention. Join urban orchardist and award-winning author Susan Poizner in this fruit tree care workshop, where she will share tried-and-true secrets to success in growing healthy, successful organic fruit trees.

Susan Poizner is a passionate filmmaker, journalist, urban orchardist and fruit tree care educator. She is creator of the fruit tree care certificate training program at www.orchardpeople.com, author of the award-winning fruit tree care book Growing Urban Orchards and host of the monthly fruit tree care podcast The Urban Forestry Radio Show on RealityRadio101.com.
