Fruit Tree Workshop
April 28th, 2012
Office: Workshops/Classes
10 am to noon
Location: Country Apple Orchard
You can increase your property value and provide fresh chemical free fruit for your family by simply planting fruit trees. If you’re like many other people who have decided to dedicate part of your garden beds to vegetable growing, due to concern about the quality of the produce you feed your children, you can learn to take it a step further and grow your own fruit.
Steve Fouch, retired horticulture educator for MSU Extension, will share his knowledge gained working with tree fruit grower around the state. Steve now manages his own tree health and nursery business and does horticulture consulting work. Together with Dick Barker, owner of Country Apple Orchards in Petoskey, Steve will provide information valuable to inexperienced and experienced fruit growers.
Topics covered with include selection of varieties for our area, site preparation and growing for quality, tips on planting and tree nutrition, proper training and care of young trees, pruning of older trees, protection from deer and other critters, insect and disease control. After covering these topics that will be presented in a handout, the class will venture out into the orchards to see firsthand how Dick prunes and cares for his trees.
It’s difficult to put a dollar value on fruit trees, but it will set your property apart from properties without them and could pique the interest of a potential buyer.  
Steve Fouch will be offering several varieties of semi-dwarf fruit trees for sale at the conclusion of the workshop. The workshop will take place Saturday April 28th from 10am to Noon at the Country Apple Orchard 8785 Horton Bay Rd., just west of US31 in Petoskey. Call Cydney Steeb at the Emmet Conservation District for registration information or download a form at www.emmetcd.org. Cost for the workshop is $15 per person and the registration deadline is April 23rd.
