Spring 2013 Update

This spring, 2013, we will not be holding a community wide fruit tree sale.

For all who have purchased trees from the Edible Cityscape Project over these past 4 years of its existence, thank you! You have helped to plant several thousand fruit trees in the greater Fairfield area. In 5-10 years, Jefferson County will have an abundance of fresh, local fruit, and our food system will be the stronger (and tastier!) for it.

If you are interested in purchasing young fruit trees at an affordable rate, please go directly to Stark Bros. Nursery. Their website may be found here: http://www.starkbros.com/

Sold Out

Thanks to everybody who came out and got trees for making this such a great sale!

We are happy to announce that we are completely sold out of trees – over 800 new fruit trees have been dispersed & planted in the greater Jefferson County area!

Although we are unsure about whether or not we will be hosting a public sale like this next year, check back in the fall/winter to find out more information about how you can get fruit trees next spring (2013). Thanks again!

Tree Guarantee:

We, Full Circle Tree Crops, did not grow the majority of plants we are selling. The trees/plants come from reputable nurseries that guarantee that when we receive the plants, they are alive and true-to-name.  We cannot be held responsible for the health of the plants once they leave our hands – proper planting in a timely manner, correct soil preparation, and appropriate watering are all contributing factors that are outside our control.

Replacement policy: 100% survival rate for all trees planted is simply an impossible expectation. This past year we endured uncharacteristicly hot and dry weather, which placed exceptional strain on all plants in the area. Without consistent watering and care over the past 8 months, it is likely that losses will have occurred at higher rates than normal.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but we cannot replace plants lost to the drought or otherwise.
