Saturday, March 16, 9:00 am – 11:00 am – Planning and Creating a Compact Orchard


The Arnold Arboretum, in concert with the Mary M. B. Wakefield Charitable Trust, will offer a workshop with the staff of the Wakefield Estate in Milton, Massachusetts on Saturday, March 16, from 9 – 11. Become a backyard orchardist and grow your own fruit! Even with a small yard, you can enjoy fruit from your own trees with minimal effort and cost. This step-by-step workshop will teach you all you need to know to plan and create a compact orchard for years of enjoyment. Participants will spend part of the workshop outside in the orchard for a pruning demonstration, so dress accordingly. Space is limited; pre-registration required at www.arboretum.harvard.edu.  $20 fee.
