WURTSBORO – Individuals who would like to learn basic pruning skills are invited to a free “Celebrate Sullivan Spaces” workshop in Wurtsboro on Saturday, May 30 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Hands-on instruction will be taught using the plantings and gardens cared for by Wurtsboro Renaissance, the village’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 pruning instructor will be Sullivan Renaissance Horticulture Coordinator Diana K. Weiner. “Does pruning have you feeling perplexed?” Weiner asked, “We’ll take the fear and mystery out of what to prune and make you more confident with guided practice.”
The event begins atthe Wurtsboro Art Alliance at 73 Sullivan Avenue in Wurtsboro, 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.
