Fruit trees can be a beautiful and rewarding addition to your landscape. Whether you’re planning on a single tree or a full home orchard, this workshop will cover how to select trees that can succeed and produce well in your SF / Peninsula microclimate. We’ll also discuss soil preparation and planting, as well as pruning, disease prevention, and pest management of your new trees in their first year.

Co-Presenter Master Gardener Lisa Putnam: Lisa has a BS in Agricultural Economics from UC Davis, and also studied nutrition science. She currently operates a small sustainable organic farm in Woodside and is a lifetime gardener, a UC Master Gardener (2009) and Master Composter (2010). Lisa’s passions are composting and the soil food web. She teaches both summer and winter vegetable gardening at Lyngso, Common Ground and several local garden clubs.


Co-Presenter Master Gardener Kathleen Putnam: Kathleen is a professional organic vegetable gardener serving the Mid-Peninsula, is an Int’l Society of Arboriculture Certified Arborist, a UC Master Gardener (2008), and has a degree in Environmental Horticulture from City College of San Francisco.
