Hi, BI Fruit Club!
You’re invited to join fellow club members this weekend, Sunday, March 17, for a pruning and spring cleanup event at beautiful Johnson Farm. The winter snow was unkind to many of the farm’s fruit trees and some sprucing up is in order.
This is a great opportunity for beginners to learn some hands-on basics of pruning, hone their skills or just lend a hand in maintaining this wonderful public farmland. Fruit club members with pruning experience will be available to answer questions and model techniques. Children are welcome.
Master gardeners, please inquire with your coordinator for possible credit hours.
This marks the third year of the club’s ongoing efforts in helping restore the Johnson Farm orchard as part of our partnership with Friends of the Farms. Please join!
Where: Johnson Farm Orchard
When: Sunday, March 17, 1-5 p.m.
What to bring: Water, snacks, pruning tools, gloves if you want them.
Access: Fletcher Bay Road to NE Twin Ponds Rd. See map insert below.
