This two-day workshop will provide a greater understanding of the scientific principles underlying the practices of pruning and grafting, and will provide hands on experience in applying the practices. On Day One, a lecture and discussion section will be provided and on Day Two, hands-on experience will be gained in various apple and pear orchards. For a registration fee of $95, each attendee will have access to both days of material, will be provided lunch on Day Two and will be able to take home apple trees grafted in the workshop. Attendees can choose to skip the lecture session on Day One if they so choose. Tools are not included in the registration fee. Each attendee should bring their own pruner, lopper and grafting knife. These tools can be purchased at a local hardware store or online sites such as www.terrebonnelimited.com.
