Once again City Fruit is offering classes to help you grow better, prune better and make better use of your trees and shrubs.
The next class is Saturday, March 19, from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon and covers Permaculture and Orchards. The class takes place at Bradner Gardens Park classroom: 1733 Bradner Place S, Seattle in the Mt. Baker neighborhood.
Learn permaculture best practices for planting and maintaining healthy fruit trees including how to establish “plant communities” (or permaculture plant guilds) that activate the soil, support the ecosystem, and promote low maintenance tree health.

Jacqueline Cramer has worked the land for twenty years as farmer, teacher, gardener, designer, and activist, and has worked in urban settings designing, installing and maintaining landscapes, including over 15 school food gardens.
