Event description

Description

This workshop will focus on summer pruning of fruit trees, which can continue into September. We will cover the key concepts of summer pruning and do demonstration pruning on selected trees at the Compost Ed Centre.

As an extra bonus, there will be a question and pruner-sharpening period from 3-4pm for those of you who are able to stay a bit longer!


Trained in Ireland, Barrie Agar specializes in fruit and vegetable production. After working on a big estate in both the vegetable and ornamental areas, Agar returned to Canada, and embarked on a nursery career , working in specialty nurseries in the Victoria area. For the past 18 years she has been employed at Hatley Park at Royal Roads University, where she is currently Head Gardener.

The Compost Education Centre is located on unceded and occupied Indigenous territories, specifically the land of the Lekwungen speaking people—the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. These nations are two of many, made up of individuals who have lived within the porous boundaries of what is considered Coast Salish, Nuu-Chah-Nulth and Kwakwa'wakw Territory (Vancouver Island) since time immemorial. At the CEC we seek to respect, honour and continually grow our own understandings of Indigenous rights and history, and to fulfill our responsibilities as settlers, who live and work directly with the land and its complex, vital ecologies and our diverse, evolving communities.

Compost Education Centre memberships get you free workshops, discounts at garden centres around town and more great perks! Sign up or learn more on our website.
