Tree Pittsburgh and Grow Pittsburgh are partnering together to offer a urban fruit tree workshop. This workshop will bring in Susan Poizner, Director of Orchard People, a Toronto-based fruit tree organization, to speak about her lessons learned from starting many urban orchards. She will be joined by local Pittsburgh fruit tree knowledge for an interesting discussion on urban orcharding. This event will be hosted at the ECCO Center (200 Larimer Ave.) on Wednesday, August 13th from 6:30pm to 8:30pm and will include a walk to the Larimer Community Garden to learn about fruit trees that were planted on site. Class cost is $5. Register here!
Barbara Brewton of the Green Team is planning on driving to this workshop if people need rides or want to carpool. She is planning to be at the Career Center on Semple St by 5:45 and to leave by 6. Her car fits five other people; if anyone is interested in a ride please let them so that there is enough room for everyone. Barb can also borrow a van if necessary.
