LEARN BASIC PRUNING

‘Celebrate Sullivan Spaces’ kicks off in Mountaindale

May 19, 2014

MOUNTAINDALE – Individuals who would like to learn basic pruning skills are invited to a free “Celebrate Sullivan Spaces” workshop in Mountaindale on Saturday, May 31 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.  Hands-on instruction will be taught using the mature gardens planted and maintained by the Mountaindale Action Committee, the hamlet’s volunteer beautification group.

This is the first event of the “Celebrate Sullivan Spaces” campaign, which promotes education and community engagement in Sullivan County’s public spaces.  All events take place in parks and gardens that are cared for by volunteers.  

The instructor for “Pruning 101” will be Sullivan Renaissance Horticulture Coordinator Diana K. Weiner.  “People tend to be afraid to take pruners or saws to a tree or shrub,” Weiner said, “We will take the fear and mystery out of what to prune and make you more confident with guided practice.”  

The event begins at the Signal House, at the corner of Main Street and Quiat Road, just before 1:00 p.m.  No experience is necessary.  Gloves and tools will be available but individuals are asked to bring their own pruning shears if they have them.  Refreshments will be provided. 

To RSVP for “Pruning 101” and to learn more about upcoming community events, contact Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445 or visit SullivanRenaissance.org
