Mass Aggie Seminars 2019: A Home Garden Series
Pruning Grapes A Hands-on Workshop
Saturday, March 2, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Led by Ms. Sonia Schloemann
UMass Cold Spring Orchard, 391 Sabin Street, Belchertown, MA
Grapes are one of the most universally enjoyed fruits available. Many of the new varieties have excellent taste, are winter hardy, and can make excellent wine. Grapes are fun to grow but present some challenges. One of the biggest challenges is knowing how to correctly prune them. Participants will have the opportunity to conduct actual pruning and gain both experience and confidence in pruning and training grapes in order to produce a bountiful crop. We’ll learn about tool maintenance and sharpening, too. Bring your own tools or use ours.
This workshop will be partially out of doors, so please dress appropriately for potentially wet, cold, and muddy conditions.
Fee: $45. To register, go to: UMassGarden.com or mail a check payable to: Mass Aggie Seminars. Attn: Doreen York, UMass, 101 French Hall, Amherst, MA 1003-9294
