I am thrilled to announce an exciting event, "Growing Figs with Ross the Fig Boss," slated for Saturday, August 5th from 1 pm to 3 pm at Fair Amount Food Forest located inside Fairmount Park in Philadelphia. Join me in person as I explain the details of growing and nurturing these amazing trees. It's not just about the basics; it's about understanding the subtle relationship between the fig tree and its environment.
During this two-hour event, I will cover the fundamentals of fig tree care also mentioning tried-and-true techniques for quality fruit production that even novice gardeners can adapt. But that's not all! Participants might also get the unique opportunity to taste some of my own figs, gaining a hands-on appreciation for the diverse flavors these fruits can offer. This session promises to be an insightful blend of theoretical knowledge, practical tips, and sensory experiences, making it a must-attend for anyone keen on expanding their horticultural horizons.
