Learn how to make your own fruit tree! Fruit trees are created through the process of grafting or budding – taking the bud of a desired fruit tree variety and attaching it to a different rootstock. If you’d like to create a fruit tree for your yard, or develop numerous trees for fruit production, this is a great way to do it.
This workshop will be taught by Kent Mullinix, Director of Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security at Kwantlen University’s Institute for Sustainable Horticulture. Activities will take place on site at Evergreen’s Urban Orchard. Tools will be provided, and everyone will get to take their newly ‘budded’ tree home with them. If you don’t have anywhere to put the plant, you can also leave it with Evergreen to add to our Urban Orchard. Refreshments will also be provided.
RSVP here! Space is limited!
