I offer workshops at my farmden* in New York’s Hudson Valley (and sometimes elsewhere). This is an opportunity for me to teach where I grow, so each workshop is a very hands-on experience.

If you are in the New Paltz, NY area or are willing to travel, this is a worthwhile trip. This is a very beautiful, interesting, and historic region. Workshop length depends on the content. Note: Occasional workshops are held offsite.

Bowl of ripe figs

Yes, you can be picking fresh fruit from your own fig tree even if you live in a cold climate. I’ve grown figs for decades, beginning in Wisconsin and now in New York’s Hudson Valley.

Figs can be grown successfully in cold climates because, among other things, they are adaptable plants and have unique bearing habits.

Learn various ways to get plants through cold winters, how to prune the plants, how to harvest the fruit, even how to speed ripening, and more. If you already grow figs, this webinar will help you grow more or better figs, and be able to manage them more easily. If you haven’t yet experienced the rewards of growing figs, you have a treat in store for you.
