MOFGA Bud Grafting Workshop

Join Seth Yentes for our Bud Grafting Workshop taught at North Branch Farm in Monroe, Maine, on August 9. In this workshop you will have an overview of grafting techniques, participate in a discussion of rootstock and fruit trees, and apply techniques learned about bud grafting, which can be applied to various fruit trees. Seth Yentes has been grafting for 14 years and grows thousands of fruit trees every year, including apples, pears, peaches, plums and many more. Registration on the MOFGA Store

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Community-focused enterprises seek home-grown financing
Portland Press Herald - 12/4/2009.
By Ann Kim – Portland: The Local Sprouts Cafe is meant to be a community-centric space. Foods grown and produced locally will be served up to members and customers. The space will be a real-world classroom for job skills and a venue for art and educational offerings. With that kind of approach, it made sense to look to the community for assistance. Organizers hope supporters will lend a good portion of the money they need to renovate the space in a former dormitory.
