If you have questions about citrus and other fruit trees in your yard, listen to Joanna Glovinsky speak about “Caring for Your Fruit Trees in L.A.” at 7 p.m. on Monday via Zoom, during the Pacific Palisades Garden Club monthly meeting. She will share her knowledge and provide information about growing these trees.
Glovinsky founded Fruitstitute, the only fruit tree service in Los Angeles, which provides fruit-specific knowledge to backyard growers.
According to Fruitstitute’s mission statement, the group works “to pioneer new and abundant fruitscape, creating cultural change across Los Angeles County” and offers advice on pruning, fertilization, compost and mulch applications, planting and installation – and education.
Formally trained in fruit tree care at Huntington Ranch, Glovinsky discovered that she was “born to prune.” Her love of gardening began at The Ron Finley Project, where she planted and tended edible gardens in South L.A. She then joined forces with Fall Fruit as a fruit tree specialist and community engagement manager.
Glovinsky has a master’s degree in health and social change from USC Annenberg and is studying to receive her arborist certifications.
