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.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Some challenges would give any gardener the heebie jeebies
Kennebec Journal - 3/25/2009.
By George Smith – The large cucumber is held up rather tentatively for the approval of Dad at my vegetable stand in front of Wilson's Dollar Stores on Winthrop's Main Street. Dad worked at Wilson's. The photo, now 48 years old, sits on my bookshelf.
The Obamas kick off a victory garden movement – who will join them?
Alternet - 3/25/2009.
By Kerry Trueman, Huffington Post – Faithful followers of Obama Foodorama, the food politics blog whose house specialty is a perfect blend of substance and froth, were treated to an especially tasty scoop yesterday – the news that there will, indeed, be a vegetable garden at the White House.
Rep. Sam Farr on Organics and Food Safety
The New York Times - 3/25/2009.
Congressman Sam Farr represents California’s 17th District — which includes the Salinas Valley, hometown of the author John Steinbeck and one of America’s most productive agricultural regions. He authored the nation’s first organic standards law in 1990 as a California assemblyman. He now serves on the House Appropriations Agriculture Subcommittee and co-chairs the Congressional Organic Caucus, a bipartisan group formed in 2003 to promote organic agriculture. He recently answered questions for Green Inc. about farming, food safety and a famous new vegetable garden.
Reinventing the farmers' market
Portland Press Herald - 3/25/2009.
By Meredith Goad – Farmers Fare is similar to more traditional farmers' markets in that there will definitely be a focus on food: The produce, dairy and other products sold in the market and cafe will be supplied by local farmers. But Farmers Fare is also about building connections with neighbors through traditional activities from bonfires to block parties. There will be a playground, tables with chess and checker sets, and a walking path around the quarter-mile perimeter for moms with strollers. Children will be allowed to help out in the gardens.
