No Fuss Backyard Fruit

Thursdays, June 2 & 9, 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Learn how to grow your own fruit for preserves, pies and juice—all without the fuss that many tree fruits demand. This class focuses on three often-forgotten crops: currants and gooseberries;
elderberries; serviceberries and more (think yellow raspberries, ground cherries and plum hedges—oh my!) If you’ve ever wondered if you could replace store-bought juice with your own, this two-session class is for you.
