Workshop: Tree Pruning - Maintaining Your Fruit Forest

  • Global Growers - Decatur's Kitchen Garden 500 South Columbia Drive Decatur, GA, 30030 United States (map)

The Homestead Atlanta helps people connect with forgotten heritage skills and explore innovative sustainable-living approaches. See all workshops here.


Planting your fruit trees is just the first step – a healthy fruit forest depends on knowing how to care for and prune your leafy friends. Join Daniel Ballard of Convivial Gardens to learn about the maintenance and care of fruit trees and ornamentals on your property. This hands-on workshop will focus on proper pruning, care and maintenance, though we may also cover planting (depending on the site’s needs).

Please bring pruners & gloves and wear warm, comfortable work clothes, as the workshop will take place outdoors.
