What we're about

MDUUC Facilities Committee & Laural Roaldson
Offer a Root Collar Excavation Class. When plants are planted too deep or a hillside moves, a plant can become partially buried which eventually can kill the plant. Knowing how deep and wide to excavate is critical to saving the plant. Irrigation repairs may be necessary if any of the drip irrigation gets damaged during excavation. Drip materials will be on hand to do repairs.

Date: Saturday, June 2, 2018
Time: 9:00-12:00 p.m.
Location: Mt. Diablo Unitarian Universalist Church, 55 Eckley Lane,
Walnut Creek, in the fruit orchard down the hill from the Sanctuary

ACTIVITY: Root Collar Excavation
Throughout the morning Laural will be giving short classes to small groups or individuals who come to the fruit orchard. After receiving some training, participants will work on one of the fruit trees with periodic guidance. Come learn and practice with us!

RSVP: No RSVP required. Please show up ready to work in comfortable clothes. Bring gloves and any hand pruners and/or lopers you may have. Please mark your belongings so you can retrieve them when you leave. Questions? Contact: Laural@MDUUC.org or by phone: 925.274.0782
