Organic Orcharding Workshop: Bud Grafting with Seth Yentes

August 3, 2019
Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
North Branch Farm, Monroe, Maine
$50; $35 for MOFGA members

Please bring your own knives and a bag lunch

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. Taught by Seth Yentes at North Branch Farm, who grafts thousands of trees every year. All major tree fruit species will be covered. MOFGA will supply the buds and the rootstock. Participants should bring their own knives (available for sale at Fedco Seeds) as well as a bag lunch.
