Pruning Workshop Made Us “Fearless”

“Thank you so much for the instruction!  Now I’m fearless!” wrote one participant after the workshop last Saturday.

As a gardening student, I too appreciated this workshop, even though it’s my second one!

And others wrote the next day that they’d finally pruned all their trees!

Arborist Cheyenne Thomas explained not only the art of pruning to strengthen trees and help them produce more fruit, but also covered tree planting and general tree care, as well as analyzing garden soil.

The day was beautiful, and Ted and Mara Mile’s home site was a beautiful location.
