Come join us to learn more about grafting! We encourage people to bring scions in labeled baggies from their own trees. Please insure they are not under patent and NO citrus. There will be tables of bags so please join us whether you can bring scions or not. We ask that you only take one or two scions from the varieties you want. Be sure to wrap tape around those scions and label them! There will be a few vendors selling items and also tables with items that you can root: figs, berries, etc. There will be chairs available to sit but wear comfortable shoes to wander around the tables.

$5/entrance fee - exact cash please!
