Growing Urban Orchards
In partnership with Guelph Community Orchard Project and The Elora Environment Centre, we are excited to join Susan Poizner, an urban orchardist and the author of the award-winning fruit tree care book Growing Urban Orchards, as she guides us through fruit tree care. You will learn the techniques for dormant tree pruning (versus summer pruning when the tree is actively growing). Dormant pruning, done annually, helps you improve tree health, spur healthy growth and helps your tree develop a structure that will support a robust harvest.
