Organic Cultivation of Backyard Apple Trees Seminar
Slow Food City's Edge is pleased to present Rick Belding, pioneering orchardist and head of the fruit and vegetable collection at the Chicago Botanic Garden. Rick will provide specific information on methods and formulations used in the organic care of Chicago Botanic Garden's apple orchards. His insightful presentation will provide homeowners with the requisite information on how to grow America's favorite fruit in their own backyard. Rick is a leader and a generous educator and with the knowledge gained at his presentation we will be able to continue the work of the Slow Food movement to preserve countless varieties of heirloom apples.
Come prepared to learn and taste an heirloom apple treat. We will also make some varieties of heirloom apple trees available for sale and future pickup.
