August 2015 Events

August 2, 2015:  Sunday orchard work party in the heritage orchard at Prusch Park. Everyone welcome. Please come and help in the maintenance of our orchard. This is a really great way to learn from the pros! Likely activities include some summer pruning and cutting back of suckers. Hopefully there will be some fruit to sample! Yummy snacks provided. Time 9:00 to 11:00.

August 7 – August 9, 2015:  Festival of Fruit in San Diego!! This is a great opportunity at minimal cost for members. The focus this year is on managing with the ongoing drought in California, with appropriate irrigation practices and cultivar selection.

August 15, 2015: Bi-monthly meeting at Emma Prusch Park in San Jose. Open to all. Meeting starts at 1:00. Come early for chatting and snacking.  We will meet at the picnic tables by the high density (apple and pear) orchard, near the big brown barn. Topic will be summer pruning with hands on practice. Please note the date of the meeting is a week later than our usual August meeting due to the FOF in San Diego. Bring your clippers and some gloves. Our instructors will be Nancy Garrison and Sean McGrail.
