Member Jenny Kimmel (she says as she writes in 3rd person) needs some help in shifting what was once a mixed annual/ perennial production garden into a guilded orchard. There are hundreds of perennials to dig up and redistribute around 10-15 fruit trees, irrigation lines to retire, and raised beds to flatten. She’ll talk about the changing space, the importance of proximity to high use zones in maintenance, and how the understory layers will help to support the fruit trees.
Tea/ coffee/ snacks provided. Bring gloves, a water bottle, and extra rakes/ shovels if you have them.
