All trees have a profound and important role is sustaining life on the Earth. A person learns character from trees, values from her roots, and change from her leaves. Let us show you how to care for her. Join us for a fun and informative class on how to properly care for your fruit trees to reap a bountiful harvest.

Our class instructor is Kaitlin Oki, farmer at Cloverleaf Farm in Davis, CA. Since graduating from UC Davis with a Bachelors of Science in Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems, she has practiced organic farming at the Cloverleaf Farm growing a variety of fruit trees, blackberries, row crops, medicinal herbs and native plants. Kaitlin believes empowering neighborhoods to take ownership of their built and living environment is essential to reclaiming food sovereignty and transforming the ways we live, work, and eat.
