Apple Tree Grafting Workshop - Free Event
May 23, 2015 10am - 2pm
SLO City Farm - 1221 Calle Joaquin, San Luis Obispo
Local gardeners, fruit growers, and permaculture practitioners are invited to attend, learn about and practice techniques of grafting fruit trees at this "hands-on" public workshop, led by Dr. Joseph Sabol, Nell Wade and other volunteer experts from the Central Coast chapter of the California Rare Fruit Growers (CRFG).
You will learn how to graft various types of “prunings" from locally growing apple trees to rootstock, all provided by these local CRFG workshop leaders. No grafting experience is necessary and it is not hard and lots of fun to learn. Rootstock for apple trees will be available for $3.00 per root and all proceeds used to support the volunteer activities of this CRFG chapter.
We hope to continue offering other one day hands on workshops in addition to volunteer opportunities to help out the community in the form of Permablitz and Potluck Days.
