Home Orchard PruningThe joy of growing fruit in the home garden is enjoying a renaissance.   One of the key steps in successful fruit growing is the act of pruning the trees.  This can seem daunting and complicated, but it’s not!  Not once you understand the principles involved.  Come learn how to properly prune your fruit trees (apples, pears, peaches, etc.).  Participants will have the opportunity to conduct actual pruning and gain both experience and confidence in pruning fruit trees in order to produce a bountiful crop.  Bring your own tools or use ours.*
