PRUNE-A-THON A PLANT AMNESTY BENEFIT

Join Plant Amnesty and Sky Nursery for a full day of free pruning demonstrations, slideshows, seminars, and fun. Confess your gardening sins to Father Weedo Sarducci! Get a free 15-minute gardening consultation…. Come to learn and stay to buy—a portion of the Sky’s sales that day will be donated to Plant Amnesty to support their educational programs. Midwinter is the best time to prune many ornamental and edible trees and shrubs, and Charlie will go over the basics; when to prune; tool selection and care; proper pruning of various kinds of trees, shrubs, and vines. He’ll demonstrate tools and techniques from Sky’s stock.


Sunday, March 3rd            1pm – 2:30 pm
Vermiculture: Composting with Worms    Emily Wilkins

Remember your mom telling you to clean your plate and not waste food?  Well, you shouldn’t waste your food scraps either!  If you have banana peels and coffee grounds, you can set up a worm bin to turn food waste into rich worm castings, a.k.a. vermicompost.  Known as one of the richest types of compost, worm castings help plants grow bigger, healthier, and sweeter.   Treat your plants while reducing your waste stream!  Emily Wilkins will tell you everything you need to know to get started.

Check the events calendar as the event approaches for a detailed schedule for the day.
