Tonight (Part 2): Orcharding 101 for City Dwellers at BK Brainery


This Thursday, August 25 at 7pm, join us for a free, awesome event with Red Jacket Orchards!

In Orcharding 101 for City Dwellers, Red Jacket Orchards VP of Farm Operations, Mike Biltonen, will discuss the ins and outs of starting your own backyard or rooftop orchard right here in New York City. From the fundamentals like pest management, fertility, basic physiology, and establishment to more esoteric topics like propagation (making your own trees), crop and variety selection, and permaculture, Mike will cover it all. Please bring your dreams and desires (as well as questions and quandaries) for what you’d like to achieve with your very own fruit trees.

This class will take place at the Brainery, 515 Court Street in Brooklyn. Give us a heads up at if you’re planning on attending!
