CLEMSON, S.C.–Apples and peaches are staples in the Upstate, but often are difficult to grow on a small scale. Join us for an interactive session that is specifically geared towards small-scale production and homeowners who are managing only a few apple and/or peach trees. Clemson University’s Assistant Professor of Pomology, Dr. Juan Carlos Melgar and Area Fruit and Vegetable Extension agent, Kerrie Roach will examine several new research-based techniques for home fruit production. The discussion will include soil stewardship, Integrated Pest Management strategies and general care of apple and peach trees.
The workshop will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 12 from 6 – 8 p.m. at the Oconee County Clemson Extension Office meeting room located at 301 West South Broad Street in Walhalla, SC. A workshop fee of $20 is due prior to class. Each participant will leave the class with a “Management Tool Kit” including 100 Clemson Fruit Bags, soil sampling materials, work gloves and other informational material to practice management strategies learned in the class.
