prunersThis hands-on pruning class if part of the Gardening in Small Places series and gives you a chance to get a feel for pruning by letting you try your skills on our landscape before doing your own.

If you want to get some hands on experience, please bring your pruners, gloves and eye protection.

Please do not purchase pruners for this class. One of the topics is tools and we want you to discuss what to purchase before you do. We have tools you can try out; however, bring your own gloves.

Topics for the workshop cover pruning fruit trees, ornamentals and desert plants. Homeowners and other interested parties are welcome to attend.
