Urban farmer, Greg Peterson, founder of The Urban Farm has been growing fruit trees for over 40 years in the Valley of the Sun and offers education on the best techniques for successfully growing fruit trees in the desert. The 2020 challenge facing The Urban Farm is hosting classes while maintaining appropriate social distancing. Instead of holding a live in-person Kick-off event, this year it will be a live online event consisting of a full course of learning opportunities, several Q&A sessions, and the event’s traditional giveaways. With the advantage of current online technology, participants will be able to join classes and access course work from the comfort of your own home. Fruit tree education continues throughout September, October, November, and early December with free webinars and potentially some in person classes around the city.
