Fruit Tree Grafting [Offsite]
April 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm$75.00
Almost all the fruits and nuts we eat these days come from grafted trees. Join us in learning the magic of grafting and basic fruit tree care. During the workshop you will create your own grafted apple tree through hands-on grafting and take your new union home. Also, we will cover re-grafting older trees, and grafting tricks that allow grafting ornamental and wild trees to bear tasty fruits. We will also inadvertently talk about fruit trees in the food forest model. Pruning and general tree health care covered in this workshop.
