Budding, Summer Pruning and Annual HOS Picnic

Join us this Saturday for our yearly Budding/Summer Pruning Workshop and stick around for our potluck picnic luncheon!

August 4th from 9am-3pm at the HOS Arboretum on the CCC campus in Oregon City.

Once on campus follow the signs to the BROWN parking lot or Environmental Learning Center.

From 9:00 am until 11:00, join HOS members for a free bud grafting class that will teach you the basics of summer fruit tree grafting. Bring your hand pruners and a sharp knife if you have one.

At 11:00 am HOS members will demonstrate summer pruning techniques using various trees and espaliers in the Arboretum collection as your tree supply.

We’ll taste summer fruits gathered from around the Willamette Valley from noon until 12:30 pm. Bring your berries, early apples, plums and figs!

At 12:30 pm we will sit down together for a great potluck meal. Bring a dish to share and you own plates and utensils, and a picnic blanket or your favorite folding chair.
