Agroforestry: Apple Tree Grafting with Dan Bussey

March 23 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Agroforestry: Apple Tree Grafting with Dan Bussey

Apple Historian Dan Bussey is widely known for his expertise as the author of The Illustrated History of Apples In the US and Canada and his previous work as Orchard Manager for Seed Savers Exchange. Dan has been dedicated to the preservation and management of heirloom species, and has brought many of them back from the brink of extinction. Although his work chronicles 16,350 apple varietal listings, he will be working with us to share the diversity of apples at the Riveredge Farm.

Participants will learn how to graft 3 species of apples, currently growing at our permaculture Farm, onto M-2 semi-dwarf root stock. Registered participants get to take home 3 grafted apple trees in 7-gallon felt pots.

Ages 18+

Members: $100 | Non-members: $110
