The tree fruit school is a two day program designed for new growers, orchard managers, and individuals looking to start an orchard.

Students will be provided with pre-course reading materials, and are expected to engage, learn, and ask questions during this hands-on course. Come dressed to explore a New Hampshire Orchard.
