This workshop will teach you everything you need to know about how to take an existing tree and turn it into a fruiting tree that you'll actually want to eat! From historical contexts to magical creations, we'll cover a lot. We'll go for a walk in the young orchard to talk basic orchard care, and will visit some other species of trees to graft as well. 

Examples include:

  • Bradford pear seedling is turned into an Asian pear
  • Red Delicious apple is turned into a delicious heirloom apple
  • Wild persimmon seedling is turned into an Asian persimmon
  • Bur Oak turned into an oak with sweet, edible acorns! 


The workshop will be broken into 2 sessions of 10 people. Morning (9-12) and Afternoon (1-4). 

With lots of practice under your belt from this workshop, you'll leave with the confidence to keep on topworking. I'll give you a knife to take home, and extra scion if you wish to change any seedling bradford pears to edible ones! 

Exact location will be sent in an email upon registration.
