About This Event

Sat. April 27, 2024 Grafting Fruit Trees Workshop
10 a.m. to Noon

In this workshop we will practice grafting on wild apple trees at Keppel Croft Gardens. This will help you get a feel for the practice. Then if you are interested, you can purchase rootstock and scionwood to graft your very own apple or pear tree ($23 per tree, valued at $40). This workshop will teach you what to look for when collecting scionwood, how to store scionwood, grafting care, the keys for successful grafting, and the importance of timing.

Additional important info:

  • This workshop will be entirely outdoors, please dress for the weather.
  • Bring a clean, very sharp grafting knife, or a thin knife with a single bevel, and a pair of clean, sharp pruners. (If your knife is new, it still needs to be sharpened).

$45 to $65 per person
Sliding scale pricing is offered, so that you can pay what you can afford. Many are in financial strain due to the current circumstances. By contributing towards the higher price range, you help those who are struggling. This helps to sustain my work and livelihood.

Rain Date: Sun. April. 28, 2024, 10 – Noon
