Fruit Tree Grafting for Beginners

View Calendar

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.

Email GOGA President, Alex William at awilli89@gmu.edu for questions. Check on facebook.com/gmugarden for updates.
