Tree Grafting Workshop with Farmshare Austin & Texas Keeper Cider
Sat, April 22, 2017, 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM CDT
Farmshare Tree Grafting Workshop at Texas Keeper Cidery
Learn this cool skill and take home some Southern heirloom apple trees you made yourself! Experience the history and techniques of fruit tree grafting in this hands-on workshop. Did you know that grafting has played a huge role in agriculture and still touches most of us every day from the fruits we eat like seedless grapes to delicious apple ciders we drink? The workshop will also include a bit of plant biology and the essential practices that separate a successful graft from a dud.
Fruit tree grafting is ideal for everyone from backyard gardeners to small farmers and allows you to add new varieties of fruit to established trees without investing the resources, space and time into a completely new tree.
Participants will practice what they learn in the workshop on apple trees that they will get to take home.
Then, enjoy the rest of the Earth Day Gardening festivities:
* Heirloom Plant Talk
* Native Seed-saving & Plant Propagation Workshop
* Seed Swap & Plant Passalong
* Live Music
* AND to tide you over, Texas Keeper will be releasing their second collaboration cider with Blue Owl Brewing, plus delicious food from Cultivo Salsa Company & Catering
Admission to the Party without registration in the Grafting Workshop is $4 at the door and goes to support Farmshare Austin.
