Urban Orchards Serve as Focus of Tree Care Workshops

In January and February 2014, Regreen Springfield, in partnership with the City of Springfield and TD Bank, will be offering two educational workshops for community residents who are interested in helping keep their neighborhoods a bit greener. In addition, workshop attendees, who compete both sessions will be awarded the “Regreen Orchard Tender” certification, which will enable them to assist in the care of Appleseed and Berkshire Orchards, and be supplied with a certificate of completion and a pair of hand pruners to keep.

 Training sessions will be conducted on the campus of Springfield Technical Community College, and will be approximately 3 hours each. All materials, books and tools will be supplied free of charge.
Session #1 – January 23, 2014 – Tree Growth, Planting and Maintenance
Session #2 – February 13, 2014 – Orchard Care, Maintenance and Pruning
Participants that attend both training sessions will receive the Orchard Tender certification and complementary pruners.
