Do your fruit trees have spots, leaf curl, or other tricky issues preventing your garden from an abundant fruit harvest? Learn about common pests and diseases that affect fruit trees in NYC and what to do about them. Members of registered GreenThumb community gardens in good standing will be eligible to receive pest management supplies, while supplies last.

This workshop is part of the Open Orchard School, a year-long series of educational programs co-presented by NYC Parks GreenThumb and The Trust for Governors Island. For more information about the project and workshop series, please see the announcements section on page 17 or visit
