Our upcoming Pruning Workshop will be held on August 23rd from 4:30 – 6:30 pm. (We will provide the address and accessibility details following registation).

In this two hour workshop we will be offering basic information about pruning techniques, followed by some hands-on experience – guided by instructors who have worked within the landscaping and horticultural industries. We will also discuss summer pruning of established trees and how to prep them for larger, more structural work in the late winter/early spring, and elaborate on how this type of pruning differs from other kinds of arboriculture. It is our hope that by encouraging regular maintenance, the trees in our community will become more resilient to the increasing stress of ever changing weather patterns.

Please feel free to bring your own tools, though we will have limited hand pruners and hand saws available for you to use. Gloves are recommended but not required.

Registration can be found on our workshop page: www.kamloopsfoodpolicycouncil.com/workshops/

Please note, this registration is capped at 10 individuals. Once the workshop is full, we will be starting a waitlist. If there is enough interest a second date will be added.
