Between September 2010 and September 2011, The Howell Collective provided free organic gardening classes, provided by Seattle Tilth, to our neighbors in the community. Below is a blurb about the details of our last class.

Pruning Basics for Trees and Shrubs

September 24, 2011; 3pm-5pm

Dabble in the mysterious art of pruning! New trees, old trees, raspberries and more sometimes need a tweak of two or even annual maintenance. Join us for a hands-on class where we will review basic plant biology, reasons for pruning, timing and tools. We will demonstrate proper pruning cuts and might even tackle a few plants on site.”
