April 2016 Events

April 9, 2016:  Bi-monthly meeting at Emma Prusch Park in San Jose. Open to all. Meeting starts at 1:00. Come early for chatting and snacking.

Want to put fresh produce on the table all year round? That’s been Lisa Stapleton’s goal for two decades for her San Jose garden, and she’s now achieved it—thanks in large measure to citrus, avocados and other fruits you might not have considered. She’ll share what she’s learned, including:
Avocado varietal selection for Bay Area cold tolerance, pollination, bearing time and fruit quality
Picking citrus varieties that extend your season
Tips for creating microclimates that help cold-sensitive plants survive
A calendar of fruits and their seasons, for help in creating your own year-round orchard
Join us for a presentation that will show you how even a small plot of land can become productive all year—and give you pointers for where to go to learn more.


We will also hold the greenwood scion exchange and the citrus budwood sale! If your have fruiting plants that are green all year (avocado, macadamia, feijoa, etc) or cuttings of plants that can be rooted now, and you would like to share, please bring them! DO NOT BRING CITRUS CUTTINGS TO THIS EXCHANGE! Citrus wood movement is restricted due to HLB disease!
