Fruit Tree Grafting Workshop

April 6 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

$50 – $80

*Free for Journeyperson program participants and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color). Scholarship application for anyone interested is available here.

Learn how to reproduce your favorite apple tree varieties! Bench grafting is a very cost-effective way to create (graft) new small trees for planting. Participants will learn why and when to bench graft fruit trees, as well as several different types of graft. After the introduction and demonstrations, participants will get to graft their own trees to take home! There will be lots of time for practice and to ask questions. 

This class will be taught by Eric List, of Morning Glory Farm in Bethel. MOFGA will provide participants with rootstock and scionwood, along with a grafting knife to bring home, parafilm tape for securing your grafts and a grafting compound to use where a seal is needed. Scionwood is harvested from the MOFGA orchards or from other orchards around Maine. 


The workshop will be held primarily inside, with bathroom access — as well as tea and coffee, courtesy of Morning Glory Farm. Please reach out with any questions about site accessibility.
