Joint Meeting with California Rare Fruit Growers
Speaker: Larry Saltzman
Best Bare Root Fruit Trees for Santa Barbara
In December and January local nurseries sell apples, pears, stone fruit, mulberries and figs while the trees are dormant. Larry Saltzman, President of the Channel Islands Chapter of California Rare Fruit Growers, will describe some of the most productive and beautiful fruit trees you can plant in our region. He will also list Central Coast Nurseries from Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo Counties where you can buy fruit trees.
Larry and his wife Linda have a garden with approximately 125 fruit trees on their 1/3 acre property where they live. Larry is also involved with the Mesa Harmony Garden orchard where fruit is grown for the Food Bank. Mesa Harmony Garden is also an educational center with workshops on how to plant and maintain fruit trees, along with Permaculture classes. Larry has a certificate in Permaculture design and has taught numerous classes on Food Forests and other Permaculture topics.
