Summer Pruning

Mark Brammer from Strzelecki Heritage Apple Orchard will show you how to prune your fruit trees in summer. The benefits of summer pruning is to help to reduce the prolific growth that often occurs after your winter prune. It also helps to open the canopy of the tree to allow more light and less potential for fungus infestation. Mark has many years of experience with growing fruit trees and can answer all your questions on pruning and varieties to grow in this region. The Manna Community Garden offers a number of trees for this workshop. Come and enjoy a cuppa in the Manna Gum Community Shop first before going into the garden. Cost is $5 per person. Bring along your own secateurs, hat and water, it could be a hot morning.

The group meet every Monday from 10am-12midday to harvest, plant, water and maintain the garden. There is always lots of conversation in the garden with ideas, friendships, recipes and lots more to share. It is a place to wander around or sit quietly amongst the trees. Visitors are most welcome to look, smell and appreciate the garden. If you would like to benefit from the harvest please come and join us on a Monday.
