Western Region Master Class - Winter in the Organic Orchard

Second in a seasonal sequence of workshops about organic orcharding. Primarily, we'll be dealing with apples, though many principles might well apply to other tree fruit. If it's your first time at the Kretschmanns, we'll spend a little time familiarizing with the history of the orchard itself. You'll see three blocks of apple trees (one of which is trellised) planted at about 10 year intervals. We'll focus on what concerns the grower at this time of the season, what he/she is looking for and looking at. In this season, any orchardist is out in the trees pruning whenever the weather allows. This will be the primary concern of the workshop. Pruning is sometimes the hardest task to learn from a book since each and every tree is different. We'll start off with the simplest instructions for total beginners and work our way into mature trees and that universe of considerations. Lest you think we've got it all together, come and learn from our mistakes. Next meeting will be in the spring..
