Saturday, April 1st, 2023 – No Foolin!

Join us at the Kemp Natural Resources Station on Saturday April 1st to learn about the ins and outs of growing apples in the Northwoods. Whether you’re thinking about planting an orchard or wondering why you keep losing your crop, this workshop will provide some helpful information. This year, we will focus on developing a management plan for your trees. The cost for the workshop is $20 per person and will include lunch.

The session will begin at 9:00 am, with check-in starting at 8:30 am. Lunch will be served at 12:15 pm, with a pruning demonstration to follow at 1:00 pm.
