This half-day workshop, presented by organic orchardist John Knisley of Alternative Roots Farm, will cover the basic principles of pruning your fruit trees, fruit tree anatomy, timing of pruning events, pruning for consistent fruit production and different tree shaping techniques.

We will begin the workshop with classroom style instruction and then will be going outdoors to practice pruning. You are invited to bring your own pruning tools if you have them, otherwise we will have tools available for you to try. Please dress appropriately for the outdoor session of this class (second half).

The cost is $25 per person. Send a check to Alternative Roots Farm, 11197 130th St., Madelia, MN 56062. Registrations must be paid by February 23.
