Part 1: February 27 10:30am -12:30pm
This two-part class will take you beyond theory and enhance your skills as a fruit grower. In this first class, you’ll be working in the orchards pruning established trees, with hands-on instruction. You’ll practice applying pruning theory to trees grown on different training systems, and on trees of different ages. Expect to walk away feeling more confident when working with your fruit trees.
Part 2: June 26 10:30am – 12:30 pm
In the second class in this two-part series you’ll learn about the process of scouting for pest and disease issues, and about how pruning in Part 1 has affected the early growth of the trees. You’ll also learn about fruit set, and participate in a hands-on thinning practicum.
