Organic orchardists offer Grow Great Fruit workshops

Do You Feel Confident To Keep Your Fruit Trees Healthy and Pick Great Fruit Every Year?

Mount Alexander Fruit Gardens are organic orchardists located in Harcourt (central Victoria). On top of their valuable contribution to keeping us all fed, they also hold winter workshops with the aim of teaching people how to grow organic fruit at home and run the Grow Great Fruit program.

This year’s offering includes:

Sunday 15 June
(AM) Building healthy soil
(PM) Yearly Fruit Tree Planner

Sunday 29 June
(AM) Grafting
(PM) Worm farms & compost tea

Workshops are only $44 each, with discounts for booking 2 or more and are held in the packing shed on our farm –  less than 1.5 hrs from Melbourne.

All the info and bookings are available from the Mount Alexander Fruit Gardens website.

Mount Alexander Fruit Gardens also sell:

  • Bare-rooted fruit trees
    Citrus in pots
    Olives in tubes
    Various other fruit and nut trees

These workshops seem like an ideal way to build stronger, healthier communities by meeting and learning from our local food producers.

If you’re keen, make a day of it – book in for two classes and take advantage of the discounted price.
