Sonia Schlomann prunes grapes Grapes are one of the most universally enjoyed fruits available. Many of the new varieties have excellent taste, are winter hardy, and can make excellent wine. Grapes are fun to grow but present some challenges. One of the biggest challenges is knowing how to correctly prune them.  Participants will have the opportunity to conduct actual pruning and gain both experience and confidence in pruning and training grapes in order to produce a bountiful crop. We’ll learn about tool maintenance and sharpening, too.  Bring your own tools or use ours.

This workshop will be out of doors, dress appropriately for potentially cold, wet and muddy conditions. 

Led by Ms. Sonia Schloemann. Fee $45
