Winter Fruit Tree Pruning

Sunday | January 15, 2017 | 10:00 am — 1:00 pm

Location in Berkeley, CA

This class will be taught in a large Berkeley garden with over 20 different fruit trees to practice on. We will cover which varieties do well in the area, as well as purchasing good trees, pruning in youth, on-going pruning, and natural approaches to common disease and insect issues. The trees could include: pears, apples, apricots, plums, citrus, persimmons, figs, asian pears, cherries, peaches, and mulberries. This is a hands on class, and participants will have an opportunity to make some cuts with instructor supervision.
Instructor: Sequoiah Wachenheim started tending vegetables in the Bay Area at age 6 and hasn’t stopped yet! She has been sole proprietor of Earthly Arts, a consulting landscape design business for the last 16 years, and is extremely passionate about growing her own food.
