From now until November 5, the 17th Annual Fruit Tree Program is providing an opportunity for Valley residents to take home their own fruit tree and learn valuable growing and maintenance techniques specific for growing fruit trees in the Arizona climate.
The program is presented by and hosted at Urban Farm, one of the Valley’s leaders in urban farming education. Urban Farm owner Greg Peterson has been planting trees in the Valley for nearly three decades, and once again, he’s ready share his knowledge and passion for fruit trees with Valley residents.
There are two ways to go about taking advantage of the Fruit Tree Program. You can attend one of Urban Farm’s two open houses, held on November 4 and 5. On each day, a tour will be hosted at both 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., during which you’ll have the chance to see some fully grown citrus trees first hand and then make a selection for which type of tree you’ll be growing at your home. Peterson will be on hand, offering some quality advice so you can select the perfect tree for your yard.
If you can’t attend a tour in person, you may also preorder your fruit tree online. You may also take one of the Urban Farm’s handful of online classes or view an instructional videos at your convenience.
All classes and tree preorders are available now. Preorders and bundle packages will be available through November 5. Orders will be delivered in January and February 2017.
