Tree crops can be amazing sources of nutrition, flavor and beauty in our surroundings.  Uncommon tree varieties are among the most useful, interesting and easy-to-grow. Learn about a selection of species and their basic care and maintenance.

Aaron is the owner of Edgewood Nursery, specializing in unusual edibles, including minor fruits, medicinal herbs, perennial vegetables and permaculture plants; and Edgewood Landscapes focusing on edible landscapes and sustainable practices.

This event is one of the Land Trust’s Winter Gardening Workshops, a part of our Tom Settlemire Community Garden. The Workshops are a wonderful opportunity each winter to learn from master gardeners through practical lectures and hands-on training. Gardeners of all levels can improve their skills.

The workshops focus on organic gardening methods and provide information about topics such as choosing plant varieties, starting seedlings, permaculture, the  use of native plants, soil enrichment and mulching, gardening in small spaces, and controlling common pests and disease.

Workshops are held on Sundays from January – March each year, from 2:00-3:30pm at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Brunswick.
