October 22nd from 2-4pm, Tom Cronin will be running Fall Fruit Tree Pruning for Beauty and Bounty. Tom will be teaching the art of growing beautiful fruit trees that also produce prolifically. This will help enable participants to start their own backyard orchard.
This class is part of the ‘Home Orchard’ series, including ‘Fall Fruit Tree Pruning for Beauty and Bounty’ (10/22/2016), and ‘Bare-root Fruit Tree Planting’ (1/14/2016). Purchase tickets for both and save!
Here is a teaser from Tom:
Pruning is vital to your fruit tree’s health. If you want a fruitful abundance, make sure you understand the art of pruning, from apricots to apples, pomegranates to plums.
In this class, you will learn basic techniques of pruning and what tools to use. I will first demonstrate how to prune a tree and then foster hands-on learning with one-on-one assistance in the pruning process.”
Tom Cronin has gardened for over 25 years, and he is extensively involved in a number of local projects, such as City Trees and Incredible Edible Redwood City. To read all about his experience, visit his website, Tom’s Edible Gardens.
