February Workday: Plant, Pruning, Grafting
February 29 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Join in for as long or as short as you’d like, to help create beauty and nutritious productivity on the bank of the San Lorenzo River in downtown Santa Cruz. And learn more of the principles of seasonal, sustainable orchard maintenance, including a topwork grafting demonstration as we expand our collection of cultivars through the creation of multi-fruiting ‘frankentrees’.
On this orchard workday at Mike Fox Park, we will conduct seasonal maintenance on the edge of spring, graft more fruit varieties into the orchard, and expand the plantings with several subtropical fruiting species and flowering orchard associates.
This is your community orchard! Keep informed of our entire schedule of events by signing up here: http://santacruzorchard.org/get-involved/
