Are there fruit trees growing where you live in Buellton?

BUELLTON COMMUNITY GARDEN located at 480 Central Avenue, wants to know about your favorites. If you already have fruit trees, what kinds are they? How are they doing? If you could have fruit trees, which ones would be on your wish list? A public presentation about how to select, plant, and prune fruit trees is coming this fall. Your input will help us learn more about which fruit trees are thriving in Buellton now as we begin to plan our own orchard.

Please take a moment to share your thoughts. Send email to info@buelltongarden.org, call Annie Yakutis at 805-245-1858, or use the links below to answer our quick two question survey online. Thank you!
