Walpole Recreation has partnered up with the Norfolk Agricultural High School to offer this course which provides both classroom instruction and hands-on training.
Come and learn how to properly prune while preserving a plant's natural vigor and beauty.

Learn the science behind the pruning - what, when, where and why. Then go outside and actually do it!
Please dress for field work and bring your pruning equipment, including hand pruning shears and a small pruning saw.

Participants will be able to:-
Develop an understanding of what, how, when and why we prune plants. Identify tools and techniques of pruning and use plant identification to understand the proper pruning requirements for different species.

Inclement Weather
In the event of inclement weather that inhibits activity, you will be notified by email of that day's cancellation as early as possible. Every effort will be made to make up the missed class at the end of the program. During the winter, if Walpole Public School closes due to inclement weather, Recreation Department programs and classes will also be cancelled for the day.

Refund Policy
Because the Recreation Department incurs expenses to hire staff, purchase supplies and materials, and contract other expenses in preparation of a program, the department cannot offer full refunds. Full credits may be issued. Partial refunds may be issued upon request, however a 20% administrative fee over the overall program cost will be deducted per registrant. The Recreation Department will not issue refunds for any credit card convenience fees incurred. No refunds or credits will be issued without 48 hours' notice prior to the start of the program.

If you have any questions or concerns about the program, please contact the Recreation Department at 508-660-6353 or directly at
