Fruit Tree Management Workshop

March 22, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Friends of Grand Rapids Parks is partnering with the Kent and Montcalm Conservation Districts to present a workshop on the growing, maintenance and pruning of fruit trees.  The event will take place on March 22nd at Sietsema Orchards in Ada; 8540 2 Mile Rd.  The workshop will begin promptly at 9am and continue until noon.

Although the setting for this event is a production fruit farm, the programming will be targeted towards small scale, urban, and backyard fruit growers.  We will cover basic topics including selecting appropriate varieties, watering and fertilization, tree biology, insects and disease, and significant coverage of tree pruning with an outdoor practical.

We hope you can join us for this informational event.  There is no charge for attending this event.

Space is limited! If you are interested in attending this class, please RSVP to Lee Mueller at 616.389.4687.
