I offer workshops at my farmden in New York’s Hudson Valley. This is an opportunity for me to teach where I grow, so each workshop is a very hands-on experience.

If you are in the New Paltz, NY area or are willing to travel, this is a worthwhile trip. Workshop length depends on the content. Note: Occasional workshops are held offsite.

PRUNING WORKSHOP, with Lee Reich, PhD, farmdener* and writer (author of The Pruning Book)

This hands-on (my hands) workshop will cover:

  • Timing for when to prune
  • The “tools of the trade”
  • How plants – all plants – respond to various kinds of pruning cuts
  • Pruning demonstrations, and some hands-on pruning, of a sampling of specific plants such as apple trees, blueberry bushes, grapes

After this workshop, you will feel comfortable, confident, and enlightened in pruning any plant!
