Learn the basics of pruning fruit trees in this hands-on, interactive class! We’ll walk you through everything you need to know to understand how to maximize your tree’s potential for abundant fruit. We’ll focus on winter pruning, do a demonstration, and then support you to do hands-on practice on Alemany Farm’s apple and plum trees. We’ll discuss other fruit trees depending on the interest of the participants.
