This event is from our partners at Fruitstitute:
This is a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the art of citrus tree care for the home orchard.
We’re putting together a series of workshops so you can gain hands-on experience in the art of backyard citrus orcharding (growing fruit for non-commercial means). These classes will be hosted in the Citrus Grove at Arlington Garden, a water-wise habitat garden that fosters a diverse ecosystem by employing regenerative gardening techniques.
This series is the only one of its kind in Los Angeles! Each workshop will include a lecture on seasonal care of citrus trees, including tree assessment, biology and physiology of citrus, and when trees need what. Lecture will be followed by 2 – 3 hours of pruning where participants will gain hands-on experience on how to prune citrus using the Arlington Garden citrus grove as our classroom.
Join us to learn how to take care of your backyard citrus and help the Arlington Garden citrus trees become more fruitful than ever! Each workshop in this bi-monthly series covers the same material.
It will be hot! Be prepared. Sunscreen, hats, and lots of water.
We will provide snacks and water.
Pruning is physical labor and hard work. Please dress appropriately and be ready to get dirty.
This workshop is not suitable for children.
(Sunday) 9:30 am - 1:30 pm
