Event Details

ESPALIER WORKSHOP!

  • What is a living fence? 
  • Want to create a privacy screen, or a fence with trees? 
  • How is that even possible? 
 
Come to the orchard this Saturday, July 13th, from 9 AM until 12 PM and learn the ins and outs of Espalier
 
We will talk with local expert, Dustin Bajer, who created espalier trees on his own property. Join us at the orchard, where Dustin helped Operation Fruit Rescue Edmonton (OFRE) start the espalier trees two years ago. 
 
 
During this workshop we will be:
  • tightening our lines
  • discussing proper pruning for espalier
  • adjusting our 2 apple trees
  • starting our 2 pear trees
  • determining how to start our wonderful grapes. 
This will be a jam packed morning with a possibility of a visit to see another espalier site! 

Please dress for the weather, as this event will run, rain or shine. And bring your gardening gloves, or borrow a pair.

Organizer

Operation Fruit Rescue Edmonton (OFRE)

Operation Fruit Rescue Edmonton (a.k.a. OFRE. Pronounced “offer”)

Established in 2009, OFRE is a non-profit organization. Our project grew out of an interest in locally grown food, raising awareness about food security, and establishing urban, local connections with our food.

Vision: The Edmonton capital region is a place where all of the locally grown fruit is used productively to support the health and well-being of the community.

Mission: OFRE will mobilize volunteers to harvest, process, and preserve local fruit. OFRE will get the fruit in the hands, mouths, and minds of people in the Edmonton capital region by fostering community involvement and knowledge sharing.

Values: (SCALE)

Sharing – Distributing of excess fruit to maximize use and minimize waste.

Connecting – Connecting people together to build a strong diverse community.

Access – Allowing anyone, no matter of their income, access to fresh local fruit.

Local - Think local, act local, for sustainable independent solutions.

Education – Empowering people through teaching, learning, and understanding the benefits of locally grown food.
