Thirty people came out last Sunday afternoon, Feb 25, 2024, to a pruning workshop in the Commons orchard, led by Betty Kehler and Lynn Bowerman. Gardeners with the three allotment gardens associated with the Commons, plus members of the Commons Farm Team, they also spent time applying what they’d learned in helping prune the apple trees in the orchard. They then gathered over tea and snacks to talk about future collaborations, such as organizing a composting workshop, which will happen next.
