Trellising Workshop

When:
June 23, 2024
Time:
1 p.m. - 4 p.m.
Category:
Agriculture Events
Location:
MCC Student Farm
Details:

The trellis is an efficient and effective method of growing fruits and vegetables. In addition to growing plants upright (think tomatoes), it confines brambles and other small fruits to their growing space. It is a must for growing grapes. The trellis also allows dwarf tree fruits to be grown more efficiently.

Join adjunct faculty Rich Tobiasz as he focuses on using the trellis on your farm, starting indoors with a presentation and then outdoors on the MCC Student Farm where you’ll see multiple types of trellises in use, including for growing hops. Emphasis will be on functionality and “scalable” examples. Bring your construction questions.
