Grafting Workshop (online)

April 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us online to learn to reproduce your favorite fruit tree varieties! Bench grafting is a very cost-effective way to create (graft) new small trees for planting. Instructor Matt Kaminsky will explain why to graft and will walk you through the correct technique for whip & tongue grafting, and will also demonstrate several other methods. We encourage you to “graft along” and bring all your questions! Care for your new trees will also be discussed.  Matt Kaminsky is an apple forager, cider maker and expert grafter from Hadley, MA.

This class is also being offered in South Portland, Maine on April 23rd; learn more here.
