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!
