Learn how to care for your fruit trees in a desert climate.

Brought to you by popular demand, this class is intended to shed light on the art of caring for non-native fruit trees in a desert environment. We know some people feel quite conflicted about planting fruit trees in the desert because of their high water demands. We'll discuss varying philosophies, as well as how to properly care for your trees - including pruning, fertilizing, watering, and more.  This class will not cover propagation techniques.

This class is being offered in partnership with Friends of Tucson's Birthplace: Mission Garden, where propagating and growing heritage fruit trees are their speciality.  Garden Supervisor Dena Cowan will share her passion and knowledge for raising food in the desert.

Course Fee: 
$25 (early registration—ends 2/26/19)
