Event description

Description

Each spring and fall, SweetSong Groves offers a 3-hour class in fruit tree horticulture. It is a complete introduction, for both beginning and intermediate growers. The emphasis is on non-toxic, ecologically based methods. Topics include:

  • the seven basic horticultural concerns
  • grafted trees --- why you (usually) want one
  • fertilization
  • how to plant
  • how to prune
  • how to buy a tree
  • diseases and insect pests
  • growing in containers
  • fruit tree clubs

The topics are illustrated in a hands-on fashion that include tours of SweetSong's groves. The instructor is Darryl McCullough, an officer in two local fruit tree clubs, and owner of SweetSong Groves LLC, which grows and markets fresh ecologically grown fruit in the Sarasota-Bradenton area.

Instructions for participants can be found at Fruit Tree Paradise Workshops. The current version of the workshop notes is free and is available at that page, along with a spreadsheet of very basic information about the more common local species.

The cost to attend the workshop, including all taxes and fees, is $25 per person, all donated to Transition Sarasota, Students and those in financial need may take the class at no cost; please use the Contact page at SweetSong Groves to request no-cost participation.
