Monday, April 3 — Pruning Fruit Trees workshop, 5:30-6:30 p.m., Jaques Avenue Orchard, 9 Jaques Ave. Trees have feelings too, you know! (Seriously, some experts believe they do.) So you can’t just go hacking away willy-nilly at the spindly, winter-ravaged limbs of the pear tree your grandmother made you plant in the backyard. No, you need expert hands to make sure your Boscs or Bartletts or Harrow Sweets will come back to you in late summer. That’s where the pros from Tower Hill Botanic Garden come in.
For $20 ($10 for Tower Hill members), “learn the best way to prune fruit trees for health and production.” With the unpredictable nature of New England weather and, well, nature, every little bit helps. Registration is required.
Tuesday, April 4 — Worcester is America! Opening Ceremony, 6 p.m., Saxe Room, Worcester Public Library, 3 Salem Square “Worcester is America” — well, I guess that would make for a better city slogan than “Come for the potholes, stay for the dual tax rate!”
