This week Lynn, Sherry and Susan brought their tools out to the Ben Nobleman Park Community Orchard and went to prune the fruit trees. It was cold! But we know that this is the best time to prune young trees. We worked our way around the trees using the skills we have gained after four years of fruit tree pruning workshops. Now Susan is getting ready to launch an online workshop on pruning on her Urban Fruit Tree website to help those who don't have access to fruit tree care mentors in their communities. Now, if you happen to live near our orchard which is located near Eglinton West subway in Toronto, you are welcome to come and join us for our upcoming (and first for 2014) stewardship day in the park on April 12th at 10.00 a.m. We will do a thorough tree inspection and will start cleaning up around the trees and the pollinator garden. To come and join us, send an email to growingforgreen (at) gmail.com. See you soon!
