CLASS: Soil Basics for Thriving Fruit Trees and Gardens

February 11, 2014

The Minnesota Project’s Fruits of the City program is offering a Soil Basics class at CEAP Food Shelf 7051 Brooklyn Blvd. Brooklyn Center, MN 55429 from 6:00 to 8pm on March 4th, 2014.

Join us as we learn the basics of soil nutrition, aeration, drainage and the soil food web with an emphasis on conditioning and maintaining healthy soil.

Our presenter Fred Rozumalski is an ecologist and landscape architect with the water resources division of Barr Engineering Company located in Minneapolis, MN.   A believer in the power of every land owner’s potential to help regenerate ecological balance, Fred has developed a specialty in designing practical landscapes that sequester carbon, harvest storm water, and conserve energy.  Fred’s work ranges from writing city-wide green infrastructure plans and restoring native ecosystems to designing corporate urban environments that feature perennial food crops.  Fred is committed to teaching others to implement sustainable landscapes.

The cost for this workshop is $20. Advance registration is required through Eventbrite or by contacting Fruits of the City via email (fruits@mnproject.org) or phone (651-789-3321).

Upcoming 2014 classes include Fruit Tree Pruning, Fruit Tree Grafting and Fruit Pests and Diseases. For more information on all of our 2014 classes, visit our Fruit Tree Education page.
