Do you love fresh fruits and want to learn how to grow and care for them? If so, join Monroe County Parks and Recreation Naturalist/Garden Manager, Autumn Brunelle, and expert orchard volunteer, Dr. Aaron Ellis, at the Will Detmer Park community gardens on Sunday, June 4th from 4pm to 6pm. Volunteer attendees will learn how to properly mulch trees, manage fruit trees, encourage fruit growth, and even ID and take preventative measures against orchard pests. Volunteers will also get to test out their new knowledge by getting hands-on by assisting the orchard caretakers in mulching, fruit thinning, fruit bagging, and searching for pests! This is a great opportunity to give back to the community, learn new skills, meet other like-minded volunteers, and have a fruitful time. Don’t miss it! All tools will be provided. Please wear closed-toed shoes and bring plenty of water!
