  • Twenty one agents from VA,NC,SC,GA and TN participated in a planting and pruning workshop(click here for agenda) at the Maple Ridge Farm in Canadys, SC. Mr. Fritz Aichele owner of the farm allowed us to use his blueberry, muscadine grape, bramble and strawberry plantings. Dr. Powell Smith, Clemson University, made the arrangements with Mr. Aichelle to use his farm and Dr. Gerard Krewer, University of Georgia put the program together. FISKARS BRANDS, Inc.( was a co-sponsor of the program and provided several loppers and pruners to use in the pruning demonstrations. All the agents got an opportunity to prune blueberries and muscadine grapes. A notebook with reference materials was provided to each of the participants. Photos from the training will be posted in the future.
