All are welcome!

    • HANDS-ON Scouting and Identification of pests & diseases

    • HANDS-ON Application of management techniques including fruit thinning, fruit bagging, compost tea and neem oil applications, OFM mating disrupters, and beneficial insect releases

    The POPCORE training course combines many elements of orchard stewardship, ecosystem design, and food uses that POP has learned over the past fourteen years.  This four part series is intended to grow the knowledge, skillset, and self-reliance of our community orchard partners and volunteers, resulting in happier, healthier, and more productive community orchards.
