Learn How to Prune Apple Trees! (Cumberland)
Please join David Homa of Post Carbon Designs to learn about the proper winter pruning techniques you'll need to keep your trees healthy and productive. In this 2h session we will talk about pruning tools, examine established trees, talk about types of cuts and why you make them. Hands-on practice included. Space is limited. We can add more workshops if demand is high enough. Please dress in layers for any weather conditions, including snow boots/shoes. Recommend bringing a camera or notebook (upload photos here afterward), and a travel mug for coffee/tea (provided). ### The Resilience Hub is a collaborative organization based in Portland Maine. Our mission is to build resilience at the personal, household and community levels while creating thriving examples of abundance based on ecological wisdom. We do this by offering a range of events, education and training as well as resilience-building services ( ) and projects ( ). We operate at local, statewide and regional levels (connected to and in support of other local permaculture "nodes.") Our work touches on all the realms traditionally encompassed by Permaculture (land use, energy, water, buildings, etc.) but with special focus on food and creating new economic models. We operate collectively as a team of professionals and we are legally structured as a non-profit corporation in the state of Maine.
