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.

Press Release - 4/8/2011.
