Ron Baier will share his lifelong passion for finding the best tasting fruits and vegetables that can be grown in our climate.  You will learn tips and tricks on how to grow less hardy (but tastier) varieties like sweet cherries, blueberries, and trees/shrubs like magnolias and Japanese maples. Learn both unique and time-tested methods and techniques for soil preparation, raised beds and pruning. Receive Ron’s top picks of vegetable varieties guaranteed to enhance the quality and quantity of your harvest. Ron grows 50 different heirloom varieties of tomatoes each year and has tried several hundreds of different varieties. His fruit and vegetable lists have taken 40 years of failures and successes to compile. Bring all your questions for Question-and-Answer sessions. Depending on interest and time, grafting fruit trees and growing tea roses may be explored.


Ron Baier has a passion for lifelong learning and gardening and believes “it is what you learn after you know it all that really counts”. This philosophy has served him well throughout his 35-year career as teacher, principal, and gardener, never satisfied with the status quo and always looking for that better tasting fruit or vegetable and the best way to do something. Ron is a premier grower and exhibitor of fruits and vegetables whose yard and garden were featured in Gardens West Magazine. He grows hundreds of varieties of every type of fruit and vegetable possible… including trees and plants that most gardeners find impossible.
