Tilth Alliance Class: Grow Fruit in Urban Spaces – Feb 8

10:00AM – 1:00PM
Hosted by Tilth Alliance @ Good Shepherd Center, Room 107


Think you need an orchard or a big backyard to grow fruit? This class will show you how to use spaces of any size to grow tasty berries and fruits on bushes, vines and trees.

In this class you will learn about:

  • Problem solving and special techniques for gardening in urban-sized spaces
  • Using containers to grow small fruits, trees and shrubs
  • Fruiting plants and varieties that do well in the Pacific Northwest climate
  • Best practices for planting new trees and shrubs
  • Introductory pest management, pruning techniques and other ongoing maintenance

This introductory class is lecture-based but includes planting and pruning demonstrations and a garden tour. There will be some hands-on opportunities and we will spend some of the class time outdoors. Please dress for the weather and garden activities. .

This class will be co-taught by an instructor from Tilth Alliance and Barb Burrell, a fruit tree pruning expert who has worked extensively with City Fruit, a local nonprofit organization that promotes the cultivation of urban fruit in order to nourish people, build community, and protect the climate.

Go home with lots of ideas about maximizing your space to grow delicious fruits!
