Fruit Tree Pruning Workshop

Tree Pruning Workshop is running again in January / February in Kirkburton

The course will be held on a Saturday morning - the exact date has not yet been set, as we are trying to hold it when most participants will be available.  It is open to everyone, but as places are very limited, preference will be given to people who are willing to pass on their new skills to others, and will help prune the trees the Parish Council planted between 2011 and 2014 across the Parish.  The Council will also try to ensure that places are distributed fairly across the villages in the parish. 

If you are interested in taking part, please email your contact details and any date preferences to Emma Booth.  In the New Year we will let you know whether or not you have been successful in securing a place, and the date it is to be held. 

You will need to wear suitable clothing and footwear, bring gardening gloves and secateurs and a warm drink.

The workshop is free of charge.

We are also hoping to run a second series in the Spring / Summer for soft fruits.  We will update everyone on exact dates and locations when they have been agreed.  Please let us know if you would like to take part.
