2. It is ESSENTIAL you dress warmly, hats, boots, gloves and/or raingear (just in case)
3. Bring some bud wood from your own vineyard to practice cutting buds to look for injury

Program Agenda:
10am-11am:   We will discuss pruning and cut buds to check for winter damage
11am-Noon:   Go to the vineyard to prune VSP, High Cordon and selecting renewal trunks

The OSU Grape Team of Dr. Gary Gao, Ryan Slaughter & Dave Scurlock will be on hand to help you better understand pruning and answer your questions.

Please RSVP to Dave Scurlock at or phone 330-263-3825. RSVP is not required but gives us an idea of how many to expect. If you forget until the day of the workshop, please come anyway. It could be cold - come on now, it could be FREEZING COLD - but misery loves company and we are not going to be outside that long anyway.
