We’ll discuss the goals and techniques of pruning and I’ll demonstrate pruning an actual peach tree. We'll discuss principles of pruning fruit trees in general but most of the time will be spent on specifically how to prune a peach. We'll examine how to choose a microclimate most suited to growing peaches in the challenging environment of the Front Range. And we'll talk a bit about different pruning tools.
Wear warm clothes as we’ll be in the backyard with the tree. Rain or snow cancels.

Hope to see you there! - Judith Moran
About me: I was fortunate to be a full-time apprentice at the University of California Santa Cruz’s Farm and Gardens where I learned from knowledgable and conscientious orchardists how to care for fruit trees.
I’m certified in permaculture design, have worked for restaurants growing food including tree fruit, and tend bees holistically in Denver metro backyards.
I’m steadily and happily building a business as a permaculture consultant – spreading my knowledge of and passion for: tending trees and bees, harvesting greywater, sinking the rain in earthworks, creating compost, growing healthy food and flowers, saving seeds and designing for regeneration and abundance.
