Fruit and Nut Growing Workshop
Fruit and Nut Growing- One-day workshop.
Saturday 24 June, 8.45am - 5pm
Growing your own fresh fruit and nuts has to be one of the most satisfying things you can do in your own backyard or property! What’s more, South Australia’s Mediterranean climate enables us to grow the most intensely flavoured and nutritious tree crops in the world. This workshop will explore different varieties of stone fruit, citrus, olives, pecan nuts, figs, apples, pistachios and as many other crops as you desire, with the changing climate in mind. We will also discuss preserving techniques to stock your pantry for supply through the seasons.
The course will develop skills required to plan, establish and manage fruit and nut trees in a garden or plantation.
Using demonstrations, practicals, walks and talks, we'll examine the selection of varieties, pollination requirements, planting material (grafting and other propagation techniques), orchard establishment, tree shaping, creating microclimates,irrigation, soil fertility, and pest management.
