Part of our "Fruit-Filled Gardens" series! Learn the art and science of fruit tree grafting! If you attend the California Rare Fruit Grower's Scion exchange in January, then you know the value of collecting scions for spring grafting to expand the varieties of fruit available in your backyard orchard. Now it the time! Our mild winter weather means that many trees have awakened early, and are ready to graft. In this hands-on workshop, you will learn the "hows" and "whys" of fruit tree grafting. After learning some basic theory about tree culture, techniques and tools, we will head out to the Pollinate orchard and learn to graft onto an established fruit tree. We will also have premium bareroot fruit trees for sale onto which you can graft your collected scions or buds. Students will leave the workshop with the knowledge and confidence to make it work, and will receive 33% off our premium bare root trees and 10% off grafting tools and supplies. ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS: John Valenzuela is a horticulturist, consultant and educator specializing in fruit trees and home gardens. He is past chairperson for the Golden Gate Chapter of the California Rare Fruit Growers, and the owner of Cornucopia Food Forest Gardens, an educational fruit tree care consultancy. John Heenan is a backyard rare citrus grower who volunteers at the Indian Valley College Organic Farm and Garden fruit tree nursery and orchard in Marin County.
