Jim Neitzel, a master fruit grower will teach us how to prune fruit trees and if we have time, grape vines. You may bring pruners, there might be time for some hands on work. all trees are young and are planted with Backyard Orchard Principal in mind.

The Reader had a great article about the Rare Fruit Growers of San Diego last year. Click here

    Thank you, Michelle!!!!! Great explanation and teaching. So glad we will have more meet ups with you teaching!!
    And thanks to Jim I have a plum now which will bear 3 different kinds of plums - we put the plum tree trimmings to great use! Also, next time you are over, check out the 4 variety Mulberry tree

    Are there any other meetings not on the weekends or later in the evening. I have another volunteer commitment during the weekend mornings. Thank you.

      Sergio, we usually have Monday morning meetings. Just not this month. You always can schedule a workday and/or meetup at a time good for you.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
