Grafting workshop with John Valenzuela

‘Topworking grafting- An old plum tree make over’

Sunday, March 9th

Pollinate Farm and Garden Store, Fruitvale Oakland

John will demonstrate grafting onto an old fruit tree by ‘topworking’. A large myrobalan plum (cherry plum) tree behind the store will get a drastic ‘make-over’ with the establishment of several varieties of plums and plum X apricot hybrids, on several cut back branches. This will create a long and diverse harvest of fruit from one tree, within the next couple of years.
more info soon.
