ACTION: Increase your fruit trees’ production

Portland Parks & Recreation is sponsoring two free workshops on how to increase fruit tree production at the Columbia Childrens Arboretum  (map) this and next Saturday morning. It seems someone in City communications was inspired by Groupon:

“Do you have fruit trees? Is pruning them a random act of violence? There will be two free workshops put on by Portland Parks and Recreation at the Columbia Children’s Arboretum on pruning to increase fruit production, train young trees and restore neglected trees. The “hands-on” part means that you help prune the trees at the arboretum (planted by school kids in the 70s). Bring pruning tools and gloves if you have them (they will also be provided).”

After a half hour of training, they’ll send you out into the arboretum to prune supervised by Portland Parks & Recreation horticulturists and Clackamas Community College professor Bruce Nelson. 16 spots are available, register by contacting karl.dawson@portlandoregon.gov. Citizen labor: a creative way to deal with budget cuts. Will we be accepting WOOFers next? Treebeards on standby.

Columbia Childrens Arboretum, 10040 NE 6 Drive * 2/4 & 2/14, 9 am – noon * free, pre-registration required, 16 spots
