UPDATE January 26: Update: both sessions filled up within a day with over 100 people registered. If we are able to add additional sessions I will send out an announcement.

The Chatham County Center of North Carolina Cooperative Extension will offer two blueberry pruning demonstrations on Saturday February 25, 2017 at Howard’s Farm a few miles west of Pittsboro on Hwy 64. Annual pruning is needed to control bush height and increase yields. Bill Cline, North Carolina State University Blueberry Specialist, will discuss and demonstrate proper pruning techniques for blueberries.

This demonstration is open to the general public and appropriate for both commercial growers and home gardeners. There is no cost to attend but pre-registration is required. Space is limited so register early.

The Howards planted their first peach trees in 2011 and later added apples, blueberries, blackberries, and vegetables. They opened Memaw’s Fruit Shack at the orchard in 2014 for direct sales to customers.
