Learn how to prune apple trees and help take care of a unique apple orchard park in University Place!
Everyone is invited to attend FREE Pruning Parties at the Curran Orchard located at 3920 Grandview Drive W on the following Saturdays from 10am to 1pm:
March 9 and 23
April 6 and 27
Trained volunteers and Master Gardeners will be on hand to provide guidance. Wear old clothes, rain gear and bring loppers, hand pruners and saws if available. Help is also needed hauling branches to the dumpsters. Great for community service hours! Refreshments provided. Tree adoptions are also available (visit the website for adoption forms and information).
Students under 18 should visit the CORE website to obtain a parent consent form to bring to the orchard before volunteering.
CORE meets the first Tuesday of each month at 6pm at the University Place City Hall complex. For more information and to confirm meeting locations, visit www.curranappleorchard.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Everyone is welcome to attend!
