blueberries on bush

Are you interested in starting your own fruit or berry plants? Maybe you’ve grown them in the past, and had no luck, or maybe you’re looking for a more bountiful harvest. If this sounds like you, or if you’re interested in fruits and berries, N.C. Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center has the class for you. This March, we will be offering a FREE 3-hour, hands-on class where we’ll cover pruning, mulching, dormant season fungicide sprays, site selection, planting, and more! Plants covered will include: peaches, blueberries, grapes, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries.

The class will be held at the Currituck County Extension Office, 120 Community Way, Barco, from 9:00 a.m. – Noon on Saturday, March 5th. We will start indoors, covering the basics for each fruit type, then we’ll head outdoors to our teaching orchard for hands-on demonstrations. The class will be held rain or shine (though the outdoor portion may be shortened) so make sure to dress appropriately. 

To sign up, head over to Eventbrite at https://smallfruitworkshop2022.eventbrite.com and register by March 4th. Currently, masks are not required for indoor in-person classes but are encouraged for all individuals. Please be aware this could change in light of changing state or local COVID-19 mandates. If you need accommodations for persons with disabilities please contact Adam Formella at (252) 232-2261 or by email at adam_formella@ncsu.edu no later than 10 business days before class.
