Fruit Tree Education Series: Espalier

Saturday, September 22, 2018

Learn about espalier, a term for a fruit whose branches are trained to grow flat against a wall, supported on a lattice, or a framework of stakes.

The Fruit Tree Education Series is a comprehensive 7-part series focused on organic fruit tree care. Topics include grafting, pruning, and creating a healthy orchard ecosystem. All classes are taught by knowledgeable arborists and local specialists.

Participants can enroll in the full 7-part series for a comprehensive introduction to fruit tree care or choose to register for individual classes. $60 for the entire class ($10 savings) or $10 for each individual class.

*No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Contact Aaron Gibson at AaronG@piercecd.org to request a scholarship and discuss work-trade arrangements.
