Description

Learn how to winter prune apple and pear trees, to improve tree health, shape and productivity in a community orchard in Hyde Park, Tameside

The session will be led by experienced fruit tree workshop facilitator Mark Simmonds from Fruit Culture, who will introduce some basic theory on winter pruning at the allotments site before we then put this into practice on the trees in Hyde Park Community Orchard.

The workshop may also be followed by a traditional wassail - tbc!

No prior experience necessary or tools required.


Workshop is free but booking is essential as places are limited! Please only book if you know you can come and let us know promptly if you're unable to make if for any reason so we can offer the place to someone else - thanks!

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

As we're using sharp pruning tools, this event is not suitable for under 16s and no childcare will be available on the day so unfortunately this workshop isn't suitable for children
