Backyard Orcharding 101: Basic Fruit Tree Care
with Joanna Glovinsky
Joanna Glovinsky's career is rooted in urban agriculture and public art. She has a master's degree in health and social change communication from USC Annenberg.
During graduate school, Joanna worked for the Ron Finley Project, helping Ron (aka Guerilla Gardener) create edible gardens on the streets in South LA. In 2015, Joanna volunteered at Huntington Ranch, a magical food forest, where she received her formal training in fruit tree care. It's when she realized that she was born to prune.
In 2016, she began working as a fruit tree specialist and community engagement manager at Fallen Fruit, an artist collaboration best known for planting and mapping public fruit trees. She noticed that most backyard fruit trees were not receiving the specialized care they needed, and since no one in Los Angeles provided this service, Joanna launched Fruitstitute LLC in 2018, the only fruit tree service for residential properties in LA. This team of fruit tree specialists provides services like pruning, planting and managing backyard orchards, and also teaches clients how to take care of their own trees through hands-on, one-on-one educational sessions.
Fruitstitute's mission is to create a culture change in LA landscape management and pioneer a new urban fruitscape.
Joanna will cover the fundamentals of backyard orcharding and teach us how to successfully grow our own fruit. She will provide step-by-step instructions on how to plan, manage and care for our trees, including how to have fruit ready for harvest in our yard year round!
