Grow Bananas and Blueberries
You can grow bananas and blueberries right in you own garden. The Phoenix Permaculture Guild has partnered wiith the AZ Chapter of the CA Rare Fruit Growers Association to bring us these two new options for sale in this year’s annual Tree Day event. They have actually found a "low chill" variety blueberry that we can grow here.
These and a bunch more will be offered for sale at their Open House on October 24th at the Urban Farm. Details can be found at their website, click here.
To quote their website:
Open House at the Urban Farm
Requested donation: $5 (Cash or check only)
Join us for our annual Buy a Fruit Tree Day and Open House at the Urban Farm. This is not a class - it is an opportunity to see growing trees and learn all that we offer in the fruit tree arena. Whether or not you choose to order some trees during the open house, come on over and see how Urban Farmer Greg Peterson has successfully cultivated more than 50 trees in his 1/3 acre yard. Hope to see you there!
