Pruning 1.0: Hands-on pruning, tree care, & mulching workshop
February 12, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm$5
Starts at 9am
Stay as long as you can or want.
We plan to be wrapped up with the supervised pruning in the neighborhood by noon
Where: the Drutopia at the Dunbar (Dunbar Garden space) (NW corner of 11th Ave and University Blvd). Tucson, Arizona
Open to all. Learn how you can organize similar Neighborhood Forester efforts in your neighborhood.
After demonstration we will move to various parts of the neighborhood to get supervised hands-on experience as we help prune native food-bearing trees and shrubs in our neighborhood’s public rights-of-way.
This is an incredible learning opportunity as every six months we revisit and rework areas pruned so we see the effect of our good work and mistakes, thereby enabling us to improve and evolve with the expert guidance from certified arborist Aleck MacKinnon.
Professionals can get continued education credits for the workshop from Aleck.
Instructors: certified arborist Aleck MacKinnon of the Pedaling Arborist, assisted by Brad Lancaster & Omar Ore-Giron of the Dunbar/Spring Neighborhood Foresters.
Bring pruning tools if you have them. We’ll provide for those that don’t.
Also bring water and snacks, and dress (sun hat, gloves, etc.) to be working outdoors in the sun.
Recycle your prunings & their fertility
Organized by the Dunbar/Spring Neighborhood Foresters
