POP CORE - Pruning and Eco-orchard Workshop @ East Park
Join us for the first session of POP's Community Orchard Resilience Education (POP CORE) course! This session is hosted by the East Park Revitalization Alliance and Fair Amount Food Forest.
Class One: Pruning and Eco-Orchard Seasons - with Phil Forsyth and POP staff
In-class Portion (10am-12pm) @ Mander Rec Center:
Annual orchard care timeline
Fruit tree pruning
Berry & bramble pruning
- Fruiting vine pruning
Hands-on pruning (12:30-3:00pm) @ Woodford & Strawberry Mansion Orchards
POPCORE combines many elements of orchard stewardship, ecosystem design, and food uses that POP has learned over the past ten years. This four part series is intended to grow the knowledge, skillset, and self-reliance of our community orchard partners and volunteers, resulting in happier, healthier, and more productive community orchards.
Those completing all four classes over any two year period will receive POPCORE Urban Orchardist Certification!
