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
It's all things maple this Sunday
Portland Press Herald - 3/23/2011.

A Conversation With Wes Jackson, President of the Land Institute
The Atlantic - 3/23/2011.
Even when he's lecturing you over the phone about the effect of the hydrological cycle on soybean yields in Brazil's Amazon Basin, Wes Jackson sounds like a cowboy storyteller with a slight drawl. His campfire tales, however, are historically minded and deeply academic: he can take you from Brazil back to his native Kansas with the deft phrase, "Let's go back to the Bronze Age for a minute."
Maine chef gets a serving of national attention
Portland Press Herald - 3/22/2011.
by Meredith Goad. Krista Kern Desjarlais didn’t have much time to celebrate her nomination for a James Beard Award Monday afternoon because she was driving to Boothbay in a snowstorm to – what else? – cook for a roomful of people.
