SAT/SUN Pruning Workshops for Older Fruit Trees!  
10 am 2/11&12 - no equipment needed

Hi Everybody

We have a great opportunity this coming Saturday (and now a Sunday workshop at 10 am has been added) for anyone interested in learning a bit about pruning older fruit trees! The lovely heritage apple and pear trees located at our Land & Sea garden site on Blair St. across from the High School and Middle School will be pruned this Saturday, at 10 am.  (An additional workshop has been added for those who can't come Saturday; it will be this Sunday at 10 am.)

If you attended the workshop last year then this year will be nice to see how to prune your older tree a following year.  If this is new to you, then welcome!  Last year, people had to brave a pretty chilly morning but it was so interesting the whole crowd stayed.  Who knows what the weather holds this year.

This simple workshop will be about an hour and a half and will be of help to people who have older fruit trees. If you're interested in attending, please let us know by emailing back to slowfoodlandandsea@gmail.com. or call Linda at 317-5890 (leave a message).  We hope to film the pruning - wish us luck!

Hope to see you Sat or Sun's workshop! (or both!)

Look for greens and winter vegetables that are now available from Nootka Rose, Blue Moon, Talking Horse and other San Juan islands farms at the SJI Food Co Op on Mullis in FH!
