Urban Orchards is a growing movement throughout the world, where communities strive to address food security and improve pollinator ecology in dense urban environments. Many heritage fruit tree varieties have been lost due to the commercialization of fruit, and some innovative new varieties are being created which are disease resistant. Learn more about some great urban orchard projects, varieties of fruit trees you can plant in our bio-region and simple tips to care for your fruit trees. Throughout the talk Marcy will also include information about growing vegetables in your own backyard. From soil health to her favourite edibles.
