Event description

Description

All trees have a profound and important role is sustaining life on the Earth. A person learns character from trees, values from her roots, and change from her leaves. Let us show you how to care for her. Join us for a fun and informative class on how to properly care for your fruit trees to reap a bountiful harvest.

Class participants will learn:

  • The principles of pruning and basic tree biology
  • How to use pruning equipment safely and efficiently
  • How to prune in confidence while in maintaining tree health, productivity and aesthetics
  • Hands on pruning experience
  • What #yisraelpassion is really about

This class is open to all and no prior experience is needed.

This class will take place outdoors. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear (warm layers and closed toe shoes). We have equipment, yet participants are encouraged to bring their own pruning shears, loppers, saws and orchard ladders (in good condition). Please label your equipment.

Consider signing up for both the 101 Class and the Lab for $5 more. Details on the Pruning Lab can be found here.
