Organic Orcharding Workshop: Bud Grafting

Saturday, August 6

North Branch Farm, Monroe, Maine
Fee: $50 non-members; $45 Student/Apprentice; $35 members; Journeypersons free
Information

Bud grafting is a great way to start your own fruit trees as well as many ornamentals. "Budding" uses individual buds from this year’s new growth to graft onto rootstock already set in the nursery. The workshop will be taught by Seth Yentes at North Branch Farm. Seth grafts thousands of trees every year. All the major tree fruit species will be covered. MOFGA will supply the buds and the rootstock. Participants should bring their own knives as well as a bag lunch.

The Food and Drug Administration says you shoudn't eat sprouts from Tiny Greens Organic Farm of Urbana, Ill. Stay way from the company's organically grown alfalfa sprouts and its line of Spicy Sprouts, a mix that includes radish and clover sprouts.
What Is in Fast Food? A Newly Discovered Reason to Avoid Fast Food
Huffington Post - 12/29/2010.
By Dr. Joseph Mercola – A new study shows that toxic perfluoroalkyls, which are used in surface protection treatments and coatings to keep grease from leaking through fast food wrappers, are being ingested by people through their food and showing up as contaminants in blood.
