WHAT: This workshop will teach you how to do “whip grafting” where a select variety of fruit is grafter onto a compatible root stock chose for its growth characterics and resistance to disease. We will be grafting apples and pears at this workshop and you will take your grafted tree home to plant in your yard. The workshop will be limited to 20 people, so make your reservation today by emailing David Coyte at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your interest in either apple and/or pear trees.
The Clifton Orchard Project is a Sustainability Project of the Clifton Unitarian Church and is supported by a grant from Metro Councilperson, Tina Ward-Pugh. Additional workshops on other grafting techniques, tree maintenance and food preservation are held throughout the Spring and Summer.
