Agroforestry: Pruning Field Workshop

Agroforestry: Pruning Field Workshop

This pruning workshop is entirely outside and designed to elevate tree and shrub care for both professionals, and beginners. An emphasis will be given on old apple trees this time of year as we will be actively pruning an old forgotten orchard. You will be introduced to the basics of plant biology and structure, responses to the basic types of pruning cuts, pruning standards, timing, how to successfully restore previously mal-pruned trees, common mistakes, disease issues, proper tools and safety procedures to use. This is a workshop where you will actively improve and practice your pruning skills.

Agroforestry: Apple Tree Grafting with Dan Bussey

March 25 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Agroforestry: Apple Tree Grafting with Dan Bussey

Apple Historian Dan Bussey is widely known for his expertise as the author of The Illustrated History of Apples In the US and Canada and his previous work as Orchard Manager for Seed Savers Exchange. Dan has been dedicated to the preservation and management of heirloom species, and has brought many of them back from the brink of extinction. Although his work chronicles 16,350 apple varietal listings, he will be working with us to share the diversity of apples at the Riveredge Farm.

Participants will learn how to graft 3 species of apples, currently growing at our permaculture Farm, onto M-2 semi-dwarf root stock. Registered participants get to take home and plant their 3 grafted apple trees.

Ages 16+
