Fruit tree workshop series with FRUITSTITUTE @ Heritage Square Museum Orchard
Grow your knowledge about fruit trees with Southern California fruit tree specialist and founder of Fruitstitute, Joanna Glovinsky.
Summer Pruning 101 is a hands on workshop that will focus on stone fruit trees (peaches, apricots, plums, nectarines, etc.) and teach people why summer pruning is an essential component to growing great stone fruit. Participants will learn fruit tree pruning basics and how the season changes a tree's response to pruning as well as basic tool care. From there, we’ll dive into why, when and how to prune a stone fruit tree as we get our prune on!
This class is the 4th in Fruitstitute’s Seasonal Fruit Tree Care workshop series in the Heritage Square Museum orchard.
