Description

Learn the principles of backyard orchard culture with Angelo Eliades from Deep Green Permaculture.


When fruit trees are not properly maintained, they can become overgrown and hard to manage. Harvesting, netting, pruning and spraying become needlessly difficult, and the glut of fruit produced all at once is usually lost to birds and possums! 


Backyard orchard culture is an innovative system in which high-density plantings of fruit trees are maintained at a small size for easier maintenance. Using this technique, it is possible to produce excellent yields without excess and waste, while extending your crops throughout the year.


In this online webinar, Angelo will cover pruning, pest & disease management, feeding and general fruit tree care. He will also explain which productive plants and companion plants can be planted beneath fruit trees.


Please note:

  • If you are unable to attend the live online class, a recording will be available to watch for one week following the session. Please register prior to the class to access the recording.
  • This class is suitable for all gardeners in climates where deciduous fruit trees can be grown.

A great workshop - the lecturer was extremely knowledgeable and the slide presentation was very well thought out. A lot of information gained and a chance to ask questions at the end was very much appreciated.

Top notch educator! I couldn't believe how much I learnt from the webinar. I now have the confidence to work on my fruit trees and the motivation to learn more. Thanks very much to Sustainable Gardening Australia & Angelo Eliades from Deep Green Permaculture. I can't wait for the next event!

best breadth of information I have found about growing fruit trees! Getting the notes afterwards means that I can dip back into it at any time as repetition means I can remember what I learnt better. The presentation was also good, and it was impressive how many questions were able to be addressed. Strongly recommend this to anyone interested!
