Apple tree pruning workshop scheduled

March 18, 2012

Expert orchardist Roger Hill will lead a hands-on workshop about the fine art of pruning apple trees on March 24, from 2 to 4 p.m. at O’Neill’s Orchard, 417 Upper Woods Road, Honesdale, PA.

Hill has been transitioning the orchard from traditional growing practices to organic. Participants will also be able to tour a geodesic greenhouse. Learn more about Hill’s work at the O’Neill orchard at www.riverreporteronline.com/feature/16/2011/06/02/going-organic-roger-hi....

To reach the orchard from the Honesdale Library, travel north on North Main St/Route 191 North. Turn left onto Dug Road. Just over the bridge, bear right at the fork and stay on Dug Road. Bear right onto Upper Woods Road. The driveway is immediately after Tanners Falls Road. Alternatively, from the Bethany Library, travel North on Route 670 and turn East on Ash Street (in Bethany). Ash Street will become Upper Woods Road. At the bottom of the winding hill, continue straight through the stop sign. The driveway is immediately after Tanners Falls Road.
