Fruit Tree Pruning Workshop

Saturday, March 7th from 10am–12:30pm

Do you have fruit trees and/or shrubs in your community garden or backyard? Pruning must be done annually to keep trees and fruiting shrubs healthy and productive. In this workshop we will learn about plant care and various pruning options, reasons for each and how to execute them. Held in one of DUG’s school-based community gardens, we will collaboratively discuss and then demo each cut or branch manipulation. With an eye to the future we will also mark potential permanent branches. By the end of this workshop you will be excited and empowered to plant and manage your own fruiting trees and shrubs.

Location: Edison Community Garden (3350 Quitman St, Denver CO 80212)

$30 for public registration.

Scholarships are available! For more information, contact Brittany Pimentel, Horticultural Program Coordinator, at brittany@dug.org.
