Spokane Edible Tree Project

Incredible Edible Community Trees.

Do you have a fruit or nut tree in your landscape that needs some attention?  You’ve come to the right place!  We can help you understand how to grow a productive healthy tree.  This is an introduction to the basics of pruning and natural forms of pest management and we can answer all your questions about how to care for your food producing trees. Learn about the Spokane Edible Tree Project, a community organization helping homeowners grow and share edible tree fruits and nuts. We will spend part of the class outdoors looking at trees, so please dress for the weather!
