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.

 

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News

But that equation gets a bit more complicated when animals don't eat food fit for humans—but rather turn resources we couldn't otherwise eat, whether it's trash or grass, into a high-value protein for human consumption.
Will Shuanghui keep the world's largest pork producer environmentally clean?
The Guardian [UK] - 12/10/2013.
By Heather Duncan - After racking up millions of dollars in environmental fines for water contamination in the 1990s, the world's biggest hog and pork producer, Smithfield Foods, has been working hard to convince critics that it has changed. Over the past decade, its sustainability efforts have garnered awards and international certifications. But its sale to Chinese meat processor Shuanghui International Holdings in September has raised new questions about the future of its sustainability commitments.
