It is late winter, working into early Spring . . . time to plant your free fruit tree or shrub.

Yes, it is the 2nd annual Brian Duncan Memorial Fruit Tree and Shrub Giveaway time.
To honor the memory of Brian Duncan, the Arbor Lodge Tree Team is again holding a workshop and giving away for FREE fruit trees and shrubs chosen for our neighborhood.

Together with April Jamison, Garden Ecology owner and fruit tree expert, we chose trees and shrubs that produce delicious fruit, are easy to care for, disease resistant, and will do well in North Portland.  April states, "By using a holistic lens and emphasizing systems that 'work with nature',  she is able to help in transforming spaces into places of beauty, abundance, and joyful experience-- places that care for the earth, care for people, and inspire trends toward healing and sharing. "

You are invited to attend her workshop from 9-11 at the Kenton Fire House to learn more about planting and care of your new trees or shrubs.

This year, all trees and shrubs are sourced from One Green World, a local nursery.

So, go to:

http://arborlodgetrees.org

to learn more about the available trees and shrubs.  Watch a video of last years' event, reserve your tree or shrub (2 per person), and come to both the workshop listed above and the Giveaway at Arbor Lodge Park, off Delaware, from 11:30 to 1 to pick up your plant.  Come to both the workshop and Giveaway, or just one or the other.  All are welcome at both - but be sure to reserve your plant or we won't have it!  We will have Mason Bees and info on this native pollinator, cookies, and maybe hot drinks for all.

Don't miss out!  We have apples, pears, figs, persimmons, plums,  quince, elderberry, and blueberries - several varieties of each to chose from, except only the native elderberry.

See you there.
