Fruitstitute’s Seasonal Fruit Tree Care Workshop at Heritage Square

Fruitstitute’s Seasonal Fruit Tree Care – Citrus 101

Learn the secret to growing juicy fruit in your own backyard!

This is a unique opportunity to gain hands on experience in the art of backyard orcharding (growing fruit for non-commercial purposes). Workshops will be hosted in the Orchard at Heritage Square Museum, a living history museum that explores the settlement and development of Southern California from the Civil War to the early 20th Century.

The series is the only one of it’s kind in Los Angeles beginning with the Citrus Tree Care 101 workshop! Over the course of one year, we will cover seasonal care of citrus, stone fruit and pommes, which are the varieties at the museum orchard. Those who attend all workshops will gain a comprehensive education in backyard orcharding.

The bi-monthly series contains seven workshops covering backyard orchard care: Citrus Tree Care 101, Tree Selection and Planting, Weekend Pruning Intensive, Fruit Tree Nutrition and Citrus Pruning, Summer Pruning (May and July), Fall Tree Care and Winterizing.
