Come and learn how to winter prune apple and pear trees!

FREE half-day course at Littleover Community Orchard (off Moorway Lane, Littleover, put on by Derby Food Growing Network. You will learn about pruning newly planted trees and the formative pruning/maintenance pruning of young and mature trees. Sadly this site has not got any older neglected trees for us to practice on, so we may talk about restoration pruning, but we will not be able to do any.

IMPORTANT HEALTH AND SAFETY MESSAGE
The course will be risk assessed and led by an experienced leader with first aid qualification. However you should note that Derby Food Growing Network does not have any insurance, so attendance at this event will be ENTIRELY at your own risk.
