Skillshare: Apple Tree Pruning

  • Jan 17, 2010 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please join our own Dave Homa (who has done pruning professionally) in learning how to
prune your apple trees while they are in their winter dormancy in order to improve their ongoing health and productivity. Dave will be running this skillshare at Aaron Parker's house (aka The Bike Barn) in West Falmouth - about 25 min from downtown Portland. The event will include discussion of techniques, common mistakes and suggested tools. Handouts provided. The session is expected to run about 3 to 3.5h and will be followed by the sharing of a potluck meal (please bring a dish to share).
Rain/Snow Date is Jan 31, same time. Space is limited. If this fills up quickly and you still want to get in on this, please email the meetup organizer to start a list for running a possible repeat event! Please remember to bring your own potluck kit (plate/bowl/utensils/cup/napkin)! Please consider bringing your digital camera and posting up a few photos after the event! Potluck food safety ideas here:
http://fycs.ifas.ufl.... Dress in layers for the weather. We will have access to covered/heated spaces to warm up if needed.
