Very informative workshop. Katie is a great instructor - everything was very clear. Her demonstrations were also very clear and loved that we all had ample time and help to do each grafting technique.

Grow Great Fruit Program

We grow organically, and teach organic growing principles and methods. We’re aware of the changing climate, so the farming methods we use help to create solutions, not add to the problem. We've poured years of experience into our farm-tested Grow Great Fruit program after talking to hundreds of home growers, and figuring out what you need most...information, security, and someone you can trust to help you solve your problems.
