Since 1979 he has taught gardeners, orchardists and agroforesters across the Pacific Northwest the techniques of pruning and training. He has a horticulture degree from the University of British Columbia, is a Licensed Professional Horticulturist, an Arborist and a Master Gardener.

Vancouver Fruit Tree Project

The Vancouver Fruit Tree Project is a non-profit society, whose volunteers harvest extra fruit from backyard fruit trees and redistribute it to community groups. Over the last few weeks they have included a few tree fruit focused posts I wrote for them in their blog. Please have a look and consider becoming a volunteer for this organization. A link to Freshly Picked: The Blog can be found on their main page: https://vancouverfruittree.com/
