During this hands-on workshop, homeowners will learn how to care for their fruit trees and increase the production of apples and stone fruits. Participants will visit a working farm where Terry Schaedig will cover fruit tree basics: the simple logic of pruning, how to prune for thrifty trees and easy harvest, early training, seasonal routines, grafting techniques, and pest and disease control.
Saturday, April 15 from 1:00-3:00 PM
