    CitySoil Farm and DIRT Corps is hosting a tree pruning workshop at CitySoil Farm. Come and learn at this demonstration farm how to prune fruit trees for aesthetics, growth, and maximizing output. Food and tools will be provided. We hope to see you out there!


    BRING: Water


    WEAR: Long sleeve shirt, long pants, closed-toed shoes, and a hat. Dress for the weather.


    DIRECTIONS: We are located on the southeast corner of a 90 acre industrial utility. This means that our physical address doesn't really match our mailing address. The address to the King County South Treatment Plant, whose land we share, is 1200 Monster Road and will take you to a gate that is not near the farm. However, 1300 SW Grady Way is the closest approximation to a physical address. Please read directions carefully and call Fedora at 620-388-1925 if you get lost.
