Fruit Tree Pruning & Grafting Workshop

Did you know that winter pruning promotes tree health? Ready to prune and don’t know how?

Join Daily Acts for the Winter Wizardry Workshop where you’ll learn how to prune fruit trees, propagate plants from cuttings, chop-&-drop to cycle garden nutrients, and harvest rainwater within your landscape. We’ll start with an inspiring tour of the Cavanagh Center’s thriving community-powered food forest, which produces an incredibly diverse array of publicly available food while also saving 67,000 gallons of potable water annually. Then you’ll have a chance to do some hands-on learning with John Valenzuela, president of the Golden Gate Chapter of the Rare Fruit Growers. John is a plant whisperer, a fruit fanatic and a food forest wizard whose passion for creating edible ecosystems is positively contagious. If you are a newcomer to these concepts, then now is your chance to ask questions from the expert and grow your skills in the garden, so make sure to mark the date on your calendar.

You’ll come away with an abundance of knowledge to help your garden make the best of the restful winter season and pop to full, colorful, food-pumping life in the spring! Be sure to bring your questions, pruners, and a friend!

426 8th Street, Petaluma, CA. Sunday, February 19th from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm; $35
