Growing Kiwi on the Olympic Peninsula” is the Jefferson County WSU Master Gardeners September educational lecture series topic. This free brown bag garden lecture takes place Monday, September 15, 12-1, at the WSU Extension office in Point Hudson (380 Jefferson St., Port Townsend).
The “Port Townsend Kiwi Man”, Dennis Schultz, will be discussing kiwi varieties, care, feeding, pruning and harvesting. Dennis has been selling kiwis every fall at a number of Seattle farmers markets since 1997. His kiwi plants are a Siberian variety of fruit with smooth, green edible skins. They are well suited to our climate.
WSU Master Gardeners welcomes the public to come learn how to grow and care for kiwis.
Questions and sharing personal kiwi growing advice are encouraged throughout the lecture. Bring your lunch and have fun learning.
The Brown Bag Lecture Series is sponsored by WSU Jefferson County Master Gardeners and is held March through November, on the third Monday of each month, at noon.
