Protect your food forest from cold and wildlife through the winter months!  

Winter is the time when most trees and shrubs in New England go dormant, but, that doesn’t mean you don’t need to take care of them! Your trees and shrubs have stored their energy in their roots so they can burst forth when Spring returns. In this workshop you will learn how winterize your trees for a good rest, how to protect them from a winter sunburn (yes, really!), and how to protect them from critters like deer, rabbits, and voles. Join our instructor Ben Crouch, owner of Land of Plenty landscaping. Ben has years of experience working with trees and landscapes and has taught many pruning workshops. He also maintains the fruit trees of the Boston Nature Center.

Combine this workshop with Let’s go nuts! Collect and process local acorns and black walnuts, offered on the same day!
