THIS EVENT WAS POSTPONED DUE TO RAIN! The new day is Saturday, Feb. 4.
When it comes to keeping fruit trees healthy and strong, proper pruning is key – and that requires the expert knowledge of a longtime grower.
Luckily, Paul Kolling is here to help. The owner of Nana Mae’s Organics has grown apples and other fruits for decades, and on Jan. 21 he’ll share his knowledge in a tree pruning workshop at Sonoma Garden Park. This workshop will provide a great opportunity for new and seasoned gardeners to expand their pruning knowledge while getting hands-on training at the lovely Sonoma Garden Park.
Kolling, a Kenwood resident and fourth-generation Northern California grower, is a strong believer in sustainable techniques and says every orchard must be cared for differently, depending on its own circumstances. But one thing about growing is universal, he says: There’s no way to fake it. For Kolling, the proof is in his award-winning juices and sauces made organically from fruits grown here in Sonoma County. He is continually learning and practicing his craft, and is excited to share his wealth of knowledge with workshop participants.
The upcoming workshop is Saturday, Jan. 21 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Sonoma Garden Park, 19996 7th St. E., Sonoma. This popular workshop has been known to fill up quickly! Tickets are $15 for Sonoma Ecology Center members or $20 for non-members and can be purchased at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2791256.
