Getting Started with Nut Trees

 Registration is closed for this event

Nut trees can provide highly nutritious food for centuries. Local nuts can be used for anything from holiday snacks to staples like flour, oil, and butters. This class, taught by experienced nut growers Brian Caldwell and Akiva Silver, will provide information on growing nut trees in a changing climate, the best types of nuts for growing in NY, harvesting and processing nuts, and samples of several types of local nuts.

Start planning your edible food forest this fall! Sean Dembrosky of Edible Acres will demonstrate techniques for propagating edible tree species, such as stratifying seeds of a variety of fruit and nut trees and striking cuttings from fruit bushes. Ripe paw paws from Cornell's orchard will be available to taste and participants will be able to take home seeds and cuttings as well. - See more at:
Growing vegetables and herbs in containers is a great way to get started with gardening! Container gardens need little care other than watering, and most herbs and vegetables can be grown in pots and planters, even root crops like potatoes, carrots and onions.  Many items can be upcycled for planters, including old watering cans, rubber boots, handbags, and anything else that holds soil! Bring your own creative container to this class and you will go home with it planted. - See more at:
