Fruit Tree Pruning Workshop in Silver Lake this Weekend

Our neighbor Lora is putting on a fruit tree pruning workshop on Sunday. Here’s the 411:

I’m an arborist and I’m doing a charity bike ride to raise money for tree research and education. Rather than bother my friends and family for donations I thought I would use my actual skills and knowledge to raise money for this great cause. I need to prune my own fruit trees this weekend, so why not make it a workshop?!

This Sunday, April 8th from 1pm-3:00 pm in HaFo SaFo (Echo Park/Silver Lake) I have taught fruit tree pruning classes at botanical gardens including The Huntington and I will adapt the same handouts I’ve used for this workshop. We will prune 1 peach, 1 apple and 1 lemon tree so that we can discuss the three most common types of fruit tree pruning for Southern Californians. I’m asking for a $40 donation per person to attend (though you are welcome to donate more!) Once you donate I will reply with the exact address. Here is the link for more info.
