Grow Great Fruit Locally
Judi Stewart was born and raised in New York City and traded the business world and city life for big dogs, chickens and gardening. When she’s not cooking, Judi has been raising poultry, growing small fruits and grafting fruit trees. When Judi first came to the area, she became a Master Gardener. She was soon instrumental in restoring the Chimacum Grange and starting the beekeepers club and farmer’s market. After serving as president of Western Cascade Fruit Society and its local Jefferson County chapter, Judi continued to research, experiment and incorporate strategies which soon improved yields, the taste of the fruit and the health of the trees.
Whether planting in a container or in the ground, Judi will be sharing the innovative and sustainable technologies she uses today in order to produce healthy, superior and abundant fruit harvests.
Grow large and small fruits that are healthy and have superior flavor. Whether a few or many, a diversity of fruiting plants can provide successive harvests for months, whether eaten fresh, frozen or processed. Learn how to use old and new methods to improve your soil, keep pests at bay and best of all, increase your fruit yields.
