WE ARE LOOKING FOR A SITE TO HOLD OUR FALL RENOVATION WORKSHOP

Do you, or someone you know, have a yard that has been neglected and can use some TLC? We are currently looking for a site to host our fall renovation workshop. Our workshops have a 3:1 teacher to student ratio and provides individuals who are looking to hands on experience and become Master Pruners. This means that your space will be in great hands and cared for by individuals who are committed to learning how to take care of the ever changing landscape.

Review the SITE REQUIREMENTS CLICK HERE to see if you're a good fit and e-mail [email protected] to have us come assess your yard.
