The Backyard "Fruiting Wall" Apple Orchard

Learn how 100 square feet of space can yield 5 bushels each of 5 different types of apples.  (NOTE:price reduced $20 from last year's same event).
Jon Clements from UMASS Amherst Extension shows you how with this 4 hour workshop.  Your fruiting wall will produce two bushels each of five apple varieties in just 3 years from planting using just over 100 square feet of backyard! We will spend some time indoors talking about site, variety, rootstock selection, planting, and annual care (including pest management) of your fruiting apple wall. Then, we will go outdoors and actually plant the orchard from start to finish including site preparation, fertilization, pruning, and tree support.  Voila! Instant orchard.    There will be a break for participants to get a hot lunch at the Farmers' Market (on-site) including GF and Vegan options, or bring your own lunch.
