FREE Fruit Tree Farmers Meet & Greet and Organic Pest Management Workshop!

Calling all Camden Fruit Tree Farmers! On Wednesday, November 8th, the NJ Tree Foundation and the Philadelphia Orchard Project (POP) will host a free workshop on organic pest management for urban fruit tree orchards. This is a great way to meet fellow urban fruit tree farmers and learn how to organically treat for pests and diseases.

Robyn Mello from POP will give a lecture on common diseases and pests that can be found in this area on fruit trees. Robyn has been the Orchard Director for POP since 2014. She has extensive knowledge of urban agriculture and environmental justice issues.  We are excited to have her present and share her knowledge!

This workshop is FREE for Camden residents-recent fruit tree recipients are strongly encouraged to attend! Refreshments will be provided and attendees are encouraged to bring a dish from home, potluck style. This workshop is made possible by the Campbell’s Soup Foundation.
