Once you sign up, you simply go through the workshops in order by watching the video modules in each workshop. You will also be able to download a copy of my award-winning eBook, Growing Urban Orchards: The Ups, Downs and How-Tos of Fruit Tree Care in the City.  Then study the material in both the book and the videos. When you are ready you can take our Online Beginners Fruit Tree Care Assessment. Those who score 70% or more will receive their Orchard People Certificate in Fruit Tree Care and will be able to use your Orchard People Certified Fruit Tree Tender logo on your website or official stationary.

Practices Based on Five Years of Research and Experience

My name is Susan Poizner and I’m the Director of Orchard People Fruit Tree Consulting and Education. I’m also a community orchardist and my workshops and book are the result of five years of research in which I worked with scientists, pomologists, agrologists, and organic orchardists across North America to whittle down complicated fruit tree care skills into simple and easy-to-follow practices.

My award-winning workshops and book are designed to educate gardeners and aspiring orchardists of all levels of experience. You may be a master gardener, an arborist or a total beginner to gardening and fruit tree care – either way, by the time you finish my workshops, you will understand all the basics of fruit tree care.
