Are you a backyard gardener? Do you need help with the fruit trees in your backyard?
Join us for a fun, hands-on workshop for any backyard gardener with fruit trees! Participants will learn about the selection, planting, care, pruning, and protection of tree fruits from insects and diseases.
This workshop will take place in two locations. Beginning at 5 p.m., Fruitful Orchard & Cider Mill on 5740 W M-61 in Gladwin, MI 48624 will host a live pruning demonstration. Then at 6 p.m., participants will travel to the Gladwin County MSU Extension office at 555 W Cedar Ave. in Gladwin, MI 48624 for classroom instruction using the new MSU Extension Master Gardener Chapter on Tree Fruits.
Workshop will be held rain or shine so dress appropriate for the weather that day!
