Do you have an older Pecan Orchard? Maybe you are thinking about growing fresh fruit in your backyard? Perhaps you already have a small commercial fruit orchard and need to freshen up your knowledge before the season begins!
Please bring all of your questions and join Beaufort County Extension in welcoming Dr. Mike Parker from NC State University! Dr. Parker is our Fruit and Nut Tree specialist. He will be here on February 20th to lead a comprehensive class on Fruit and Nut Tree management in the morning from 9:00-12:00. After a catered lunch, Dr. Parker will lead a hands-on pruning demonstration from 1:30-4:00.
This will be a full day class and will include lunch. Preregistration for this event is $20.00 and is open now. Preregistration will end Friday February 16th. Registration at the door will be $25.00. Registration will include a catered lunch and all educational materials used in this event.
