Edible Landscaping: From Fruit to Nuts

Title: Edible Landscaping: From Fruit to Nuts
Location: Roane County, TN
Description: Develop Your Own Edible Landscape

“Edible Landscaping: From Fruit to Nuts” is the topic of the Master Gardeners of Roane County’s (MGRC) eighth Winter Workshop to be held on Saturday, February 2. This year the Master Gardeners have teamed up with Dr. David Lockwood, the Tennessee Extension Specialist for Fruit and Nuts; Roane County Extension Agent, Grant Palmer and the Bradbury United Methodist Church to provide not only classroom training on a variety of fruit and nut crops but also active, hands on experience in an orchard.

In the morning Dr. Lockwood and the team will provide training on the procurement and planting of a variety of fruit and nut crops in preparation for the spring season. After lunch the focus will change to orchard management and pruning. The class will then move to the orchard for hands on experience in tree pruning and tree shaping techniques. Each tree is different so seeing a number of examples is important for skill mastery.

Last year’s Orchard Workshop was a great success and received fabulous reviews on everything from the food to the skill training. With this year’s expansion of the course to include coverage of additional fruit and nut crops and the participation of the award winning Dr. Lockwood, course slots might fill up fast, so register early.

The fee for the course is twenty dollars.
