Garden for the Environment: Winter Fruit Tree Pruning
January 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Learn how to maximize tree health and fruit production by identifying and properly removing dead, damaged, and dying wood. Our expert instructors will go over general pruning technique, discuss the differences between summer and winter pruning, and lead a hands-on demonstration so that you can learn which cuts to make in the winter to keep your trees healthy and productive.
INSTRUCTORS: Jamie Chan & Blas Herrera
Jamie & Blas are natives of San Francisco. Growing up among concrete and row houses only fueled their love of the outdoors. Now they tend a small homestead in San Francisco with their two little girls, complete with honey bees, chickens, greenhouse, mini orchard and vegetables. Blas has a degree in environmental studies and a certificate in sustainable design from the Urban Permaculture Institute of San Francisco. He is passionate about reuse and envisioning a garden as a closed system. Jamie has a masters in science from SF State University and is a certified UC Cooperative Extension Master Gardener. She loves the science behind gardening and sharing it in an accessible way to everyone! In the gardening world you can often find them volunteering at their local community greenspace Sisterhood Gardens, posting #veggieporn on instagram and running their landscape/educational company Fog City Gardener.
