Come learn some simple tricks for taking advantage of the dormancy period to improve the health and productivity of fruit trees!
Winter is the perfect time for pruning orchard trees to reduce disease and increase fruit production.
Our friends from the Urban Agriculture Coalition will be joining us to offer guidance as we all learn together in this hands-on workshop designed to improve the health of our mini-orchard at the Urban & Public Affairs Garden, which features cherry, apple, peach, fig, and native pawpaw, serviceberry, and hazelnut trees!
You can sign-up to volunteer here, or just drop-in any time.
This is part of the spring series of Garden Workshops hosted by the Garden Commons, a shared, collectively-managed space, open to participation any time from students, staff, faculty, and community members. Everyone who comes is welcome to share in the harvest!
