Would you love to have your own orchard but think you don't have enough space? In last year's session we created a high-density orchard of 50 apple trees in just a 25x30 ft quadrangle on the estate! This year's session will cover the basics of creating this type of compact orchard in your own backyard. Even with a small space and good sun, you can expect high yields with little effort or cost with proper planning and set-up. Co-sponsored by the Arnold Arboretum. Suggested donation $15. Space is limited; pre-registration required. To register or for more information, call 617-333-0924.
