Ever wonder how best to sharpen and care for your hand pruning tools? A hands-on clinic will be held March 22 at 10 am at the Fells Estate. Join The Fells Landscape Director Nick Scheu to prepare for your best fruit and berry season ever. Sharp, properly prepared tools make any pruning task easier; they result in a cleaner cut at the tree or branch that will, in turn, minimize a vector for disease; and you will likely complete the job sooner, without unnecessary or wasted effort and fatigue. Bring your own pruners or loppers to sharpen; or come to work on ours. Members: free. Nonmembers: $10 per person. Advanced registration is required call 603-763-4789, ext. 3. Meets at The Fells Gatehouse Classroom. For more information, visit thefells.org.
