Fruits You Only Dreamed You Could Grow
New York School of Interior Design, 170 East 70th Street, Manhattan
Every yard and patio can be a small universe of edibles. Flowering, ripening, with exotic aromas and splashes of color, nothing inspires and satisfies like your own home fruit grove. Described as a pioneer in propagating and nurturing certified organic fruit and nut trees, David Fried founded Elmore Roots Nursery—in Vermont just south of the Canadian border—more than 30 years ago. Elmore Roots is a small farm that grows apples, plums, northern kiwis and pears, as well as black walnut and hazelnut and other nut trees. Wave Hill’s annual horticultural lecture series is held at the New York School of Interior Design. The final lecture of the series takes place on March 15, when Jack Staub will speak about Hortulus Farm.
Three-lecture series: $60/$50 Wave Hill Member or student. Individual tickets: $25/$20 Wave Hill Member or student. Seating is limited, and advanced reservations are recommended, online beginning November 16.
