With Bret C. Duncan

All aspiring fruit nuts with a conscience listen up!

Want to plant an orchard with regionally indigenous plants? Well then, you need to join us for Native Fruit of the Appalachians. In this workshop we will discuss native fruit and nut species, their care, harvesting and improved cultivars thereof. Come learn of the benefits of growing native fruit over their European and Asian cousins. Native nuts, fruit nuts and nut nuts are all welcome to this workshop!

Free, but please pre-register at the Garden Shop or call 828-645-3937.
