Orchard Maintenance Day:
Saturday, March 2nd, 2019: 9am to Noon
Pruning and Orchard Cleanup. We're pruning the rest of the trees for the coming year!
Note: If we need to cancel this event due to rain, we'll update this page by
10 am on Friday, March 1st, 2019.
We'll be pruning the trees that didn't get pruned during the January meeting. Our goal is bringing down the height of the trees so that fruit can be picked without a ladder.
For those who have had their fill of pruning for the year, we have many other jobs including cleaning up Sycamore limbs and rehanging the tree signs that have fallen down. There are squirrel holes to fill... and now we have the shovels to fill them! Weeds need to be whacked. Also, the CRFG gate sign could use some love and attention: we have stain and paint to spruce up the wood CRFG sign on the entryway gate.
We will have fruit and other snacks for you to enjoy!
Water, gloves, hat, appropriate shoes, sunscreen, insect repellent.
|Location:||CRFG Orchard at Cal Poly.
Park in the dirt parking lot at the Crops Unit at the corner of Highland Drive and Mt. Bishop Road (parking is free on Saturday). Then walk back up Highland Drive to the orchard.
