poster-pruning-3There will be a pruning workshop presented by the Greenlee County Cooperative Extensions Master Gardner Program on Saturday, Dec. 17 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at 106 Gold Star Dr. in York Valley. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch and pruning tools for this hands-on workshop. The cost of the workshop is $10.

The first part of the lessen will be tool adjustment and sharpening, so feel free to bring your own tools or learn with ours. The second part will be the “when, where, why and how” of pruning. There will be plenty of trees, shrubs and guidance for those who wish to take the “hands-on” approach.

Rain is in the forecast and could change things, so any last minute questions can be answered by calling Bill Cook, program coordinator, horticulture at 928-254-8734.
