Grafting Fruit Trees: Workshop & Exchange

Please join us Outside for Grafting Fruit Trees: Workshop & Exchange 
Limit of 10; first come, first served. Saturday, April 11. Workshop (1-2 pm), Scion and seed exchange (2-4 pm).

Please do not attend if you are sick in any way or there’s a chance you’ve been exposed!

Join Greg Meyer of Dancing Seeds Farm and friends to learn the how, why, when and what basics of grafting suitable fruit tree varietals onto new rootstock, bareroot/potted trees, or established trees in your yard. Hands on practice with provided materials, or the trees and grafting wood (scion) that you provide.

Bring any seeds, plants, or one-year old scion wood (not from diseased trees) to exchange. Dancing Seeds Farm will also have a selection of potted plants and trees for sale.

Nursery Resources: Brown’s Home Center, Bullock’s Permaculture on Orcas island, and Cloud Mountain in Bellingham have a large selection of bare root and potted fruit trees selected for this climate. Mail-order options include One Green World, Burnt Ridge, Rain Tree, Rolling River, and Willamette Nursery. County WSU Extension offices may also sell scions.

Cost: FREE; donations are welcome!
Sponsorship: San Juan Island Grange #966 and Dancing Seeds Farm
