Saturday, May 25, 2013 is Arbor Day at AssiniboinePark.  This annual fun filled day will be held at the Children’s Nature Playground in the park and is packed full of activities for everyone in the family.

For all of our fruit tree owners (or wannabes), here’s your opportunity to have some of your tree related questions answered at the “Ask the Arborist” booth or take in one of the planting or pruning sessions.

Woodturning demonstrations and guided tours of the Riparian Forest are also sure to please while adventurous kids might want to check out the extremely popular children’s zip-line rides.  And don’t miss the bucket truck offering tree top rides to those of us who dare to rise above the crowd.

Fruit Tree & Bush Maintenance Workshop – Sunday October 21

Sunday, October 21st will be a busy day for Fruit Share in West Broadway!

At 1 PM is our season wrap up party at Art City, where we will be making art in the form of a new banner for Fruit Share.

At 3 PM we are putting on a workshop on Fruit Tree and Bush Maintenance, in partnership with West Broadway Development Corporation, which will be taking place in a couple of their community gardens.  Fruit Share homeowners and volunteers are welcome to attend this workshop, which will be taught by certified arborist Ryan Dutchak and cover topics such as pruning techniques for grape vines, fruit bushes and apple trees. We will meet at 3 PM in the Spirit Park Garden (200 Young St.) and later we will also visit the Broadway Neighborhood Centre garden.
