Event description

Description

In partnership with Guelph Community Orchard Project and The Elora Environment Centre, we are excited to join Susan Poizner, an urban orchardist and the author of the award-winning fruit tree care book Growing Urban Orchards, as she guides us through fruit tree care. You will learn the techniques for dormant tree pruning (versus summer pruning when the tree is actively growing). Dormant pruning, done annually, helps you improve tree health, spur healthy growth and helps your tree develop a structure that will support a robust harvest.


YOU WILL LEARN

  • when and why to prune fruit trees
  • the difference between winter and summer pruning
  • how to prune your tree to spur vigorous growth and fruit production
  • pruning tools and techniques and how to structure your tree.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

  • home growers
  • arborists who want to learn fruit tree care skills
  • master gardeners
  • community orchard growers

We will spend 1.25 hours inside learning theory and spend the rest of the time outside using our new fruit tree pruning skills.
