The Takoma Horticultural Club Presents

Edible Architecture - Espalier & Trellis Design
Speaker: Michael Judd

Wednesday, February 21 at 7:30 pm
Historic Takoma, Inc., 7328 Carroll Ave., Takoma Park, MD 20912

Imagine a yard where trees are dripping with fresh fruits, shrubs are bejeweled with delicious berries, gourmet mushrooms sprout in the shade, and hardy kiwis fruit over an arbor. Join author and edible landscape designer Michael Judd in an exploration of combining form, function and production in your landscape. Judd will lead a virtual tour through edible landscapes while unearthing the ABCs of how to build espalier and trellis designs for fruitful favorites like hardy kiwi, gooseberry, raspberry, and apple. Trellis materials, plant selection, shaping, pruning and maintenance will be covered.

Ever wondered how you can have your yard and eat it too? Come and find out!

Principle designer/founder of Ecologia and author of Edible Landscaping with a Permaculture Twist, Michael Judd is a well known and enjoyed speaker, noted for enthusiastic and clear presentations on a host of subjects surrounding edible and ecological landscapes. He is a presenter for Mother Earth News and Monticello Heritage Harvest Festival, a guest on popular radio such as A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach, and a host of podcasts revolving around edible landscaping, gardening and permaculture.

Please bring a snack to share, wear a recycled name tag and ask a friend to join you.

This event is free and open to the public.

You are welcome to join or renew your membership by bringing a $12 check. Membership forms can be found on our website: www.takomahort.org/membership
