Choices you make in pruning immature trees can have an important impact on the trees’ resistance to disease, ability to support healthy and abundant fruit and withstand heavy winter snows. Join Brenin-Wertz Roth of Giving Tree Nursery and Todd Springer, a fifth-generation farmer, in a hands-on workshop on how to choose and make good cuts, train branches to grow at optimal angles, and perform basic spring maintenance, from fertility management to animal protection. Free.

This event is part of a series organized by the Orchard Guild, and is supported by ISLAND, the Great Lakes Bioneers, and the Northern Michigan Small Farm Conference.
