Join us for the first session of POP's Community Orchard Resilience Education (POPCORE) course!
POPCORE 1: Pruning and Eco-Orchard Seasons - with POP staff
In-class Portion (11am-12:30pm) @ Ramonita G. de Rodriguez Library:
Annual orchard care timeline
Fruit tree pruning
Berry & bramble pruning
- Fruiting vine pruning
Lunch (12:30-1pm) @ Ramonita G. de Rodriguez Library
Hands-on pruning (1pm-3pm) @ FNC Poplar Learning Farm
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!
NOTE: Sliding scale prices available for POP Orchard Partners & Volunteers and PHS City Harvest members. Childcare available if needed (please email email@example.com).
Accessibility: The classroom portion of this workshop will be held in a basement room of the library at 600 W. Girard which is accessible only via stairs- there is no elevator.
