Alder Creek Farm
January is the perfect time to get your trees and shrubs ready for a season of producing the fruits and berries of summer. Local arborist David Sipp, of Ecologic Trees will teach this workshop on how to properly prune your fruit trees for the best health and more fruiting. David brings a wealth of advice on the best way to prune both young trees, mature heritage, or overgrown fruit trees to maximize their production.
Join Lower Nehalem Community Trusts group of Community Gardeners as we all learn together on the proper tools and techniques for this annual garden care. The orchard at Alder Creek Farm has just about every fruit and berry imaginable and our orchardists and garden leaders will be demonstrating how to prune blueberries, cane berries and more.
The workshop begins at 10am, Saturday January 13th at Alder Creek Farm and is open to all community members 10 years old and up. This is a no cost event. Bring your gloves and your favorite pruner (we have loaner tools and gloves too if you need them) and join the group as we learn about pruning for maximum fruiting benefit.
The Trust’s Community Garden Program grows food for the North County Food Bank, Senior Lunch Program, and the Community Garden members. Now beginning the 13th season of growing, the program is accepting new members of the community who want to learn how to garden, and share in the bounty with fellow gardeners. Garden startup is set for February 24, 2018
