Hands-On POPCORE 2: Orchard Pest & Disease Management @ Bartram’s Garden

    Join us in person for a POPCORE workshop focusing on holistic and organic approaches to management of orchard pests & diseases, including hands-on scouting and demonstration of techniques.

    Join us in person for the second session of our POPCORE urban orchardist training course at the orchard at Bartram's Garden, one of POP's most established and diverse orchard sites.  This session is intended as a hands-on compliment to the more detailed virtual version of POPCORE. 

    Pre-registration, masks, and social-distancing required. 

    9:30am - 12:00pm:  POPCORE 2 WORKSHOP

    • Intro to holistic orchard management, incluidng most common pest & disease challenges, organic spray options, and other management techniques

    • 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.  

    Each workshop can be taken individually. Those completing all four classes over any two year period will receive POPCORE Urban Orchardist Certification!
