SSIFI Free Seminar: Orchard Restoration 

Salt Spring Island has a lot of old orchards, many of them are in need of some tender loving care and rejuvenation to produce fruit. We are holding a two hour seminar on revitalizing neglected and old unruly fruit trees with proper pruning methods.

Our goal is to help educate orchard owners and backyard orchardists to create a dedicated group of islanders to help maintain fruit trees across our island and at the Farmers’ Institute into the future. Work already begun on the apple trees at the Farmers’ Institute grounds will be featured.

If you are interested in learning about year round fruit tree maintenance and how to begin the restoration process, please join us on Sunday, November 12th from 1 – 3 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Farmers’ Institute. Everyone is welcome!

Bring your expertise to share and any and all questions you may have.

There is no charge for this event, but registration is required.
