Want to learn how to better take care of your fruit trees? Join us for this hands-on winter fruit tree pruning class held in a permaculture-based food forest garden in North Berkeley.
This class will include: Theory of tree growth, Nature’s pruning, and how to maximize health and productivity. The teacher will demonstrate various techniques for different species of trees and allow students to practice hands-on tree pruning with professional guidance.
