This series of workshops will focus on the essentials of when and how to prune those plants. We will use selected shrubs and trees at Tower Hill to discuss and practice our pruning skills. Each workshop will cover making proper cuts, different forms of pruning and most importantly pruning plants at the correct time. We will focus on plants that can be pruned at that specific time to improve their health, vitality, and flowering. You will visit several plants and learn about how we would prune depending upon desired objectives. On select plants we will practice making some actual cuts. These workshops will be specific to plant Genus that are commonly grown in gardens in New England and will provide you with a clear understanding of why it is important to prune plants at the correct time of year. The timing of each class is at the beginning of the pruning window so you will have time to go home and work with what you have learned. There are 5 workshops throughout the year. Signup for one or all five.

Michelle "Evil Gal" Wilson Concert

09.24.21 at 6:00 PM - Hopkinton Center for the Arts

Michelle is a force of nature— an emotional ball of talent that inspires with her original songs but also takes you on a journey through what she calls "the lost music" of vintage soul/R&B legends like Dinah Washington, Ruth Brown and Etta James. Michelle has had a remarkable career. The Boston native made four albums with Bullseye Records (a subsidiary of Rounder Records) under the watchful eyes of producers Ron Levy (who also played keyboards with B.B. King for many years) and the Grammy Award-winning Scott Billington, who has more than 100 albums to his credit. Michelle herself has been nominated for the W.C. Handy Award for best blues vocalist (she lost to Etta James) and has toured internationally, most recently with (award winning blues pianist) Anthony Geraci’s Boston Blues all-Stars, with whom she appeared at The Lucerne (Switzerland) Blues Festival in 2018 and The Notodden (Norway) Blues Festival in 2019. She is looking forward to playing with her amazing band. This group has been making music together for over 20 years. Featuring: Zac Casher – drums Mike Mele – guitar Shinichi Otsu – keys/bass Donn Scott Shetler – clarinet, sax, mandolin This event is free, but tickets are required. Please use the link below to reserve your free tickets to this concert. All HCA summer concerts will take place in the outdoor amphitheater.
