Description

Winter Fruit Tree Pruning

Saturday, December 15th -- 10:00 am. to 12:00 pm at Alemany Farm
Instructors: Nick Hoff and Hannah Shulman

Learn the basics of pruning fruit trees in this hands-on, interactive class! We'll walk you through everything you need to know to understand how to maximize your tree's potential for abundant fruit. We'll focus on winter pruning, do a demonstration, and then allow you to do some hands-on practice on Alemany Farm's very own apple and plum trees. We'll discuss other fruit trees depending on the interest of the participants.

Nick Hoff has been a member of the Friends of Alemany Farm since 2011 and helps steward the farm’s 150 fruit trees.

Hannah Shulman holds a bachelor’s degree in Growth and Structure of Cities with an Environmental Studies concentration from Haverford College and studied at the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems at UC Santa Cruz. Previously, she was a garden educator with Urban Sprouts, GFE, and 18 Reasons / BiRite Market, and ran the first urban agriculture program for the city of San Francisco. She is now the Senior Director of Programs at Education Outside.
