Healthy Fruit Trees – Abundant Harvest

If you have ever wanted to grow healthy, organic fruit in your own community, you’ve come to the right place. I’m an urban orchardist from Toronto, Canada who has learned how to grow fruit trees organically the hard way – by making mistakes! So many new orchardists face huge challenges, from planting the wrong trees to not caring for them properly. And it may take three to five years until they realize that their fruit tree is not thriving and not producing well. Wouldn’t it be better to save time and money and get it right, right from the start?

 

Why Do Fruit Trees Need Hands-on Care?

I know about fruit tree problems because I experienced them myself! In 2009 I was one of the founders of the Ben Nobleman Park Community Orchard in Toronto. We were the first community orchard in a public park in our city and we thought growing fruit trees would be  easy. Soon I would discover that when it comes to organic fruit tree care there is more to do than watering and mulching your trees. Watch this video to learn about our experience and the lessons we learned:

Learn Fruit Tree Care Skills Online

On this website you can take a series of five workshops that will teach you everything you need to know to plant and care for your fruit trees successfully. You can click into any of the links below to see what I cover in each workshop.

Researching and sourcing your trees
Planting and young tree care
Winter and summer pruning
Soil and nutritional management
Preventing pests and disease

You can find plenty of information about growing fruit trees online. Much of it is conflicting – or difficult to understand. On this website I use my expertise as an educational filmmaker, radio presenter and journalist to create workshops that are entertaining and easy to understand.

Practices Based on Five Years of Research and Experience

These workshops are the results of five years of research in which I worked with scientists, pomologists, agrologists, and organic orchardists across North America to whittle down complicated fruit tree care skills into simple and easy-to-follow practices.

My workshops are designed to educate gardeners and aspiring orchardists of all levels of experience. You may be a master gardener, an arborist or a total beginner to gardening and fruit tree care – either way, by the time you finish my workshops, you will understand all the basics of fruit tree care.

I’m also proud to say my online workshop Researching Your Fruit Tree was awarded a  Silver Award of Achievement for the 2014 Garden Writers Association Media Awards Program 2014 (Electronic: Special Project).  For more information click here
