Join Slow Food Chicago, the Chicago Honey Co-Op, NeighborSpace, and the North Lawndale Greening Committee for a (FREE!) hands-on fruit tree and pruning workshop. We will look at the 22 fruit trees in this community garden site and discuss issues with each. where appropriate, we will prune + shape these trees for ideal future access and harvest. For example, we may remove root stock suckers, shake trees to check stability, as well as trouble shoot for other potential problems. This event is for anyone interested in fruit, horticulture, and community. Some tools will be provided, but please bring your own gloves and pruning tools if you have them. If you can, bring a snack to share with the group and we'll share a community lunch together during the workshop!
