ZOOM CLASS: Nut Trees for the Northeast

  • Wednesday, November 17, 2021, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Nut trees can provide highly nutritious food for centuries. Local nuts can be used for anything from holiday snacks to staples like flour, oil, and butters. This class will provide information on growing nut trees in our changing climate, the best types of nuts for growing in NY, propagating nut trees/shrubs, and finally harvesting and processing nuts.

Akiva Silver is an experienced nut grower and founded Twisted Tree Farm, a nursery in Spencer, NY specializing in low-maintenance fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, and useful perennials. Akiva is the author of Trees of Power and The Conversation.

Class Recording: All Zoom classes are recorded so if you cannot make the live class, you can watch the video however only participants who have registered in advance for the class will have access to the video recording which is sent 48 hours later to registrants. Register and pay below.

We are committed to making all the Zoom classes in our Horticulture Program financially accessible, so have moved to a pay-what-you-can model. Our Zoom classes are valued at $20. If you can afford to pay $20 or more, you are helping make these classes available to folks who cannot afford the full price. All registrants, regardless of payment level, will receive a video recording of the class.


We strive to create a climate of mutual respect that enables full participation. Our goal is to create education that is usable, fair, inclusive, and welcoming. We want to know if you experience any issues that affect your ability to take part our courses. Please contact us at tompkins@cornell.edu.
