Fruitstitute is the only fruit tree service in Los Angeles.
By providing fruit tree care and education to backyard growers, we take the knowledge out of the orchard and into your backyard. Founded by local fruit tree expert Joanna Glovinsky, our mission is to create a culture change in the LA landscape and pioneer a new fruitscape.
About Joanna Glovinsky
Joanna recognized the need for fruit tree education, inspiring the launch of Fruitstitute.
Joanna has a masters degree in Health and Social Change Communication from USC Annenberg. Her life in the garden began at The Ron Finley Project, helping create edible gardens on the streets of South LA.
She was formally trained in fruit tree care at Huntington Ranch, a magical food forest. After Joanna’s first class on pruning, she knew she was born to prune. Shortly thereafter, she joined the public art project, Fallen Fruit, where she worked as a fruit tree specialist and community engagement manager. Joanna is currently studying for her arborist certification.
