About the instructor:
Monica Maggio's mission is to continually harness and cultivate her inner plant nerd in ways that benefit the greater Portland metro community. As a Master Gardener & OSU Extensions Services instructor, former Arboretum Manager for the Home Orchard Society, and current owner of Core Home Fruit Services, she has seen firsthand how people take better care of plants once they know they can eat them! Monica is equally skilled and active outside the classroom as a professional fruit growing expert. She offers pruning, consultation, and coaching services for all tree fruits, berries, and ornamental plants.
