Fruit Tree Grafting for Beginners

Want to learn how to add branches of multiple fruits onto one tree?! To turn a decorative crabapple tree into a food producing apple tree?

Join GOGA (GMU Organic Garden Association) in welcoming local fruit tree expert Eliza Greenman, as she explains the basics of grafting in the JC Gold Room. Then follow us outside to the Innovation Food Forest where you will get to practice making cuts into wooden branches of several kinds of fruit (peach, apricot, nectarine, pear, apple, mulberry and more) and then bandaging them so they can heal.

Come back in springtime to see your branch blossoming! The workshop is free for students and community members.

    On our planet, one in seven people goes hungry. But hunger is not about too many people and too little food. Our rich and bountiful planet produces enough food to feed every woman, man, and child on earth. Hunger is about power. Its roots lie in inequalities in access to resources.

    Join us for the 2018 Hunger Banquet on November 14th, 2018!
