A FRUIT WORKSHOP 2018
TWO Workshops - Fruit Planting & Propagation Saturday April 28, 2018 ....Cost $100 for each workshop
WORKSHOP # 1 - PLANTING FRUIT....Who,What, When, Where, Why?
We get frequent requests for "on site" consulting but suggest that anyone who is planning a farm orchard or a backyard fruitscape should first come to this 3 hr workshop and ask all your questions (9-12 noon). We discuss small farm orchards, permaculture orchards, food forests, agroforestry and city or urban fruitscapes.. Even if you are planning to start fruit growing in your backyard this workshop will help with your decisions. We will explain how to choose the varieties(genetics) that can be grown organically with no sprays. We also explain how to choose varieties to match your soil and climate conditions.
WORKSHOP #2 - PROPAGATING FRUIT....using seeds-cuttings-grafting-layers-etc
The afternoon propagation session (1-4 pm) will show how you can use fruit seeds/cuttings/scions/buds to propagate your own plants. We will have propagation materials available ...seeds,cuttings, scions, buds, grafting tape,rootstocks, etc.....so you can actually propagate your own fruit at the workshop ...and take it home to plant.
