Description

The Aesthetic Pruners Association presents:

THE ART OF PRUNING GARDEN TOUR 2019

East Bay Gardens



Take a self-guided tour that highlights aesthetic pruning in 6 East Bay gardens. The gardens are located in Montclair, Piedmont, Oakland hills, and San Leandro, California.

See beautiful gardens featuring skilled pruning by certified members of the Aesthetic Pruners Association (APA). An APA aesthetic pruner will be on-hand to answer pruning questions at each garden.


APA certified aesthetic pruner, Eric King, will demonstrate his pruning technique on a container tree at the Fairchild garden at 11am and again at 2pm.

Ticket holders can pick up a free raffle ticket when you attend the demonstration for a chance to take home Eric's beautifully pruned specimen. The raffle drawing will be directly after the demo and you must be present for the raffle drawing to win.


Tickets:

$35 in advance/$40 the day of the tour if advance tickets are not sold out. Online sales end at 9pm on 10/5/19. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the gardens. Proceeds to benefit the APA.


A percentage of the proceeds will go to the APA Sachiko Umehara memorial scholarship fund.

As owner of Momji Nursery in Santa Rosa in partnership with her husband, Mike Umehara, Sachiko was a great advocate of the Aesthetic Pruners Association and had special relationships with many of its pruners. Her spirit lives on in the beautiful maples she grew and nurtured, and are now treasured by many people. This scholarship is awarded to a student at Merritt College in Oakland, CA who wishes to get a horticultural education and study aesthetic pruning.
