Hands-On Pruning Workshop at CAMP CELO (15 minutes from Downtown Burnsville!)

Spring is upon us and it’s high time to give your fruit trees a seasonal spruce up. Judicious pruning is probably the single best thing you can do to keep fruit trees healthy and productive. In the first part of this two-hour workshop, Justin will share some principles of pruning and training trees. In the second part we will get hands-on, putting the knowledge into practice and taking care of the fruit trees at Camp Celo.

Participants should bring a pruning saw and hand pruners. Also for sale at the shop and online!

About the Instructor:
Justin Holt, co-founder of Nutty Buddy Collective, learned to graft about 10 years ago. Soon after getting the hang of it, he and a partner launched Nutty Buddy Nurseries, a small nursery operation where they grafted 100’s of heirloom and interesting fruit varieties. Justin maintains orchards with the Nutty Buddies, helps tend fruit trees in public spaces throughout the Asheville area, and offers consultation and fruit and nut tree services.
