Wednesday, May 12th 4-6pm @ The Boston Nature Center
In spring and early summer, preventative and proactive maintenance for your fruit trees is a crucial practice to incorporate into your to-do list. The health of fruit trees relies on seasonal tasks, soil health, pest resistance, and more. Healthy trees, in turn, promote overall ecosystem health and harmony in a food forest or garden.
Join The Boston Food Forest Coalition on the evening of Wednesday, May 12th from 4-6pm at The Boston Nature Center (500 Walk Hill Street, Mattapan, MA 02126) for an observation-style workshop all about fruit tree health at this time of year in our region.
We’ll learn the ins and outs of spring and early summer care for all kinds of fruit trees in a temperate New England climate. We will dive into tree and crop health, identification and cultural control of major pests, and promoting soil fertility and health. The workshop will be led by Ben Crouch, owner of Land of Plenty Gardens. Ben has years of experience in tending trees and landscapes, and has tons of information to share with us.
*We advise wearing light-colored clothing and tick-repellant!!
**This workshop will happen rain or shine, so be prepared for any kind of weather.
