Photos of the Kitchen Garden & Coop Tour

We enjoyed seeing all of you at the Kitchen Garden & Coop Tour.  Thank you to everyone that took photos and sent them to us.  We will be posting photos of each location so that you can remember some of the beautiful plants, lively animals and great ideas from the six homeowners.  If you have more photos, please send to homegrownnewmexico@gmail.com or call 473-1403.  These are photos of Don Emery’s gardens by Sky Bat Studios.  More will be posted next week in our Kitchen Garden & Coop Menu.

Spring Tree Pruning Classes at the Railyard

Here is an announcement from the Railyard Stewards.  Contact http://www.railyardpark.org/ for more information.

SATURDAY MARCH 26, 10:30 – 12:30

This is the time of year to prune back those dead branches and shape your fruit trees. However, more harm than good can be done if pruned incorrectly.  Learn the correct techniques for pruning fruit trees and general rules for pruning any tree. Are your trees just ornamental? Are they focused on fruit production? Maybe a little bit of both? What insects and other problems do you need to watch out for this time of year? Do you have some specific problems with any tree that you would like expert advice on?  Led by Robert Wood, ISA (International Society of Arboiculture) Certified Arborist and Certified Municipal Arborist, Santa Fe Parks Department.

Meet near the new community room (silver corrugated building near the parking lot behind SITE Santa Fe).   To reserve a spot or for more information, contact the Railyard Stewards at info@railyardpark.org or call 316-3596.  Hope to see you there!
