In this workshop you will discover the difference between winter and summer pruning of fruit trees and vines. We will be working in the CCF orchard and vineyard. You will learn the differences between the fruiting woods of the different varieties of trees in the orchard and how it affects the pruning methods used to maximise their fruiting potential and maintain the health of the trees. Please bring your secateurs and hand towel if you have them. We ask that you comply with some simple COVID safety practices, such as hand hygiene and social distancing of 1.5 metres.  If you borrow any of our tools, please clean with disinfectant before and after use.
