Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park hosts a free hands-on orchard planting and first year care workshop by horticulturalist Guy Ames of the National Center for Appropriate Technology. Guy will introduce you to the history of apples and the varieties in Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park’s Borden Orchard, instruct you in proper planting, and teach you helpful techniques for first year care that can help establish your very own fruit trees! The event will cover planting, compost and fertilizing, watering, and protecting new trees from deer and borers.
