Tailored Workshops

There's nothing as satisfying as eating fresh, delicious, organic fruit from your own trees.

But despite the rapidly growing number of enthusiastic backyard food growers and small farms, few people have had the experience!

It's hard to become expert in everything you need to know - managing pests and diseases without chemicals, pruning, nutrition, soil health, water, and even growing your own trees.

Our six practical, hands-on workshops are based on our 20 years of experience as commercial organic fruit growers, and will fast-track your fruit growing skills, helping you avoid years of failures and mistakes.

You have the chance to make money for your group, and we'll also support your group with one FREE membership to our Grow Great Fruit online membership program (worth $948).

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.
