The covid crisis has certainly led to an increased interest in gardening, particularly food gardening. Gardening with fruits is a great way to get kids interested in gardening and healthy food choices. We are holding a pre-order plant sale through October 23rd with proceeds going to the creation of a teaching garden/orchard project in the Cherokee Veterans park. Once established we will finally have a site where Extension and Master Gardener volunteers can lead classes and demonstrations on fruit and vegetable gardening.
Here is a link to the introduction to fruit gardening session on our Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yb_XXH7tojA&t=954s
