Learn about grafting and the important role it plays in plant and tree production. You will receive an overview of budding techniques and practice grafting that you can use on your own trees. There will be several varieties of grafting wood, or scion wood, for you to build your own plum, peach, pear, or heritage apple tree. Rootstocks and grafting knives will be available for purchase at Common Ground. Taught by James Kern, who has a background in botany and works locally as a landscape contractor. He also teaches part-time at Foothill College and is a member of the California Rare Fruit Growers Association.
