Urban Farm Fruit Tree Program
Welcome to our 2023 Fruit Tree Program:
We’ve started our Urban Farm Fruit Tree Education Program for 2023. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org Download our 2023 catalogs for details!
Let's get planting!
All live plants and large items are for
local pick-up only - no shipping.
Citrus Limited Pre-ordering in Aug-Sept for September pick up.
Deciduous Pre-ordering open now until for January pick up.
Let's get you loaded up!

We meet Dr. Dee Stevens, one of group of friends who took an idea about harvesting fruit easier and safer, and created a product that is innovative and simple to use. They worked through several designs until they came up with one they loved. Greg learns how they came up with the idea, how they navigated through some of the challenges of fruit harvesting, and ended up with a patented solution that backyard orchardists can really appreciate.
This is an excerpt from our July 2023 TREE Chat discussing Heat Stressed Trees. We have our mentor Tom Spellman join our monthly Tree Chat to talk about how the heat is affecting our trees in the southwest and how we can help them survive the brutal extremes of the summer season. Tom brings decades of experience to the table as we chat with our zoom audience.
