Join us at the Garden Pool for this great FREE class about pomegranates.
The pomegranate, punica granatum, is a fruit-bearing deciduous shrub or small tree that is known wqorld-wide for the tasty fruit it produces. Besides providing tatsy fruit, it looks beautiful in the yard and is easy to care for.
This FREE Class will by taught by Patrick Hallman, an enthusiast of sustainable living and an Architect living in Phoenix, Arizona. Patrick maintains an edible landscape at his residence, which provides fresh fruit and vegetables each month of the year. He currently grows many varieties of Pomegranate, Mulberries, peaches, guava, figs, citrus, cactus apple, prickly pear, sugar cane, blackberries, citrus, and seasonal vegetables. Of particular interest to Patrick is the Pomegranate, a common fruit in Arizona which is much better known abroad. Besides growing out 100 different varieties in Arizona for the first time, Patrick has set up trial plantings around the valley to evaluate and monitor each varieties performance.
The class will focus on 5 parts:
- History of the pomegranate
- How to get the best fruit
We will have plenty of varieties of pomegranate plants for donations of $12 per plant.
