Chris has hosted pruning workshops at the National Arboretum in Washington D.C. and was a speaker at the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture’s annual conference on ‘Tree Fruit Health and Management’.  We are hoping to carry forward educational opportunities here in Massachusetts.


On February 1st we held our first pruning workshop at Ireland Street Orchards.  All levels of knowledge and experience are welcome to attend.   Our workshops include the theories of pruning followed by the practical application of pruning in the orchard.


Dates of workshops will be listed below:


February 1st  1p.m. - 3 p.m.

March 15 1p.m. - 3p.m.
