Welcome to our 2024 Fruit Tree Program:

We’ve started our Urban Farm Fruit Tree Education Program for 2024.  The way our program works is that we offer fruit tree education throughout the year with monthly fruit tree chats online and then in the fall we schedule our core fruit tree classes.

You can pre-order your fruit trees and keep offering information to help you get prepared. Then, just like with a pumpkin lot at Halloween, we open at the perfect time to plant.

Generally the nursery is only open for about 20 days per year in two “seasons” for you to pick up your pre-ordered fruit trees.  However, we do have small item pickup the rest of the year, and we are here for you at fruittrees@urbanfarm.org  Download our catalogs for details
