Winter Prep & Pruning Class

Winter Prep & Pruning Class

 On Saturday, November 11, we had our first class for the public on Winter Prep & Pruning. Weather you were new to gardening or just wanting to learn something new, this event was for you. We hosted two separate classes; one 12-1PM and the other at 3-4PM. Warm apple cider was served and we did a gift raffle for both classes.Tickets were only $15 and it the class was a hit!
