Workshop description: This hybrid zoom lecture and in-person workshop will seek to educate participants on the science and art of grafting. The zoom talk and Q&A on April 2nd will cover the history and varied applications of this important plant propagation technique.
The following Saturday, in-person workshop participants will then put their newfound knowledge to practical application, grafting two heirloom apple trees which they can then take plant in their own home orchard. We will also take a walk around the nursery to look at various examples of grafting applications in the landscape.
* In-person workshop participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own pair of garden clippers as well as sharp knife for grafting.
