Gutierrez-Hubbell House - 6029 Isleta Blvd SW

Since 2010, Bernalillo County Open Space and its partners have offered a free series of workshops that provides the public with practical experience and knowledge for transforming their backyards into a thriving urban oasis of food, medicine, and wildlife habitat. The guest speakers for this series are all experts in their field who present firsthand knowledge on topics such as irrigation, livestock, insects, gardening, seed saving, and much more. The workshops are held at the Gutierrez-Hubbell House History and Cultural Center.

This workshop will focus on Tree Pruning and General Tree Care, and will be presented by Albuquerque City Arborist Joran Viers.Trees are healthier and produce more when correctly pruned. Learn how to get the most from your trees with class instruction on selection, care, preventing pests and disease and fertility management.   Then we will tour the Heritage Orchard.  Bring your own tools or use our pruners to apply your new knowledge on our 45 fruit trees! 

All workshops for the 2018 season are FREE and run from 9:00am to 12:00pm at the Gutierrez-Hubbell House, located at 6029 Isleta Blvd SW (3 miles south of Rio Bravo).
