Pruning with Nature, GGF 9/30

With Leslie Buck

  Saturday, September 30, 2017
9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Learn how to do aesthetic pruning (pruning with a very natural look) from garden author Leslie Buck who trained in Japan. First you will hear about the natural gardens of Japan. Then Leslie will teach easy hands-on steps to learning aesthetic pruning basics and pruning design problem solving. After lunch, we will work on a pruning project together in the gardens of Green Gulch. We’ll close with a delightful Japanese tea-time and an open question/discussion time.

This is a hands-on class so please wear comfortable clothing and bring your own belt, pruning shears, and handsaw if you have them. We will also have some tools available here. Please contact Leslie for tool recommendations and resources if you’re interested in purchasing tools: Lbuckeye2@gmail.com.
