Calendar Of Events & Programs


Join us as we create a high-density orchard of 50 apple trees in just a 25x30 ft quadrangle on the estate! Learn the basics of creating this type of compact orchard in your own backyard. Even with a small space and good sun, you can expect high yields with little effort or cost with proper planning and set-up. No experience necessary. Participants should plan to work outside and should dress accordingly. Tools will be provided, but bring your own gloves and pruners if you’d like. The planting project will run from 9:00 am until completion around noon, when participants will celebrate our new 5-variety apple orchard over hot soup and bread in the estate’s farmhouse.  Suggested donation $15. Space is limited; pre-registration required.  To register or for more information, call 617-333-0924.
