Partner Event: Bringing back an old orchard
March 19, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm$30 – $45
Offered by Maine Organic Growers and Farmers (MOFGA)
This workshop is being offered in 4 locations: Damariscotta, Milton Mills, Hope and Gouldsboro.
Do you have an old apple or pear tree on your property that hasn’t been touched in years? These trees have an amazing capacity to produce beautiful fruit for a long time – and your tree may still have lots of life left in it! Learn how to bring it back into a healthy, productive state.
At this outdoor workshop instructors will demonstrate proper pruning techniques with a focus on trees that have been unmanaged. This class differs from our pruning classes in that the trees will be older and haven’t been pruned in a long time. Some of these tall old trees will require ladders and/or ropes to access the canopy.
How to register
The workshop is $45, $30 for MOFGA members, or free for Journeyperson program participants, BIPOC registrants (Black, Indigenous People of Color) and Veterans. Scholarships are also available.
