Master Gardeners to teach pruning March 22 at The University of Scranton


SCRANTON — The University of Scranton Office of Sustainability will host a Shrub and Tree Pruning Workshop, led by Penn State Master Gardeners, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Thursday, March 22 in the PNC Auditorium of the Loyola Science Center. The workshop is free of charge and open to the public.

Pruning shrubs and trees enhances the beauty of landscapes, while encouraging growth and strength in plants. This skill can also protect people and homes from the dangers of falling branches. Attendees will learn how to make their homes safer and more attractive, all while caring for the Earth.

The Shrub and Tree Pruning Workshop is one of a series Earth Day events organized by the university’s Office of Sustainability that include fairs, films, an environmental art exhibit and an essay contest for middle and high school students.
