Arizona – Sonora Desert Museum: Heirloom Fruit Tree Workshop

Jesús García, founder of the Kino Heritage Fruit Trees Project, will teach techniques for propagation, pruning, grafting and care of fruit trees.

The class begins with a talk on the historical significance of heirloom trees in the Sonoran Desert, then moves to the hands-on aspect of maintenance, and ends with a tour through the Mission Garden at the base of A Mountain. Every participant will walk away with fruit tree cuttings and the knowledge of how to grow them. Member price is 10% less.

Where to Meet:   Mission Garden, 946 W. Mission Lane

What to Bring:   Sack lunch, water in a reusable bottle, notepad and pencil, hand clippers (if you have them).

What to Expect:   This is a hands-on workshop. We will begin with a presentation on heritage fruit trees, then see demos as well as gain first-hand experience in propagating trees from cuttings. All participants will take home a variety of fruit tree starts.

Cancellation:   If cancellation is made more than 15 days in advance, payments will be refunded minus a $25 administrative fee. No refunds can be made within 15 days.
