2nd, 3rd, 4th July 2021
These workshops run by master grafters and fruit tree experts Wez Redden and Chris Day are hugely popular, leaving participants with a new skill and the tools to do more grafting at home.
Why learn the skill of grafting? It is a great way to create your own fruit trees, start a home orchard on a budget, grow rare or old fashioned varieties, or create multi-graft fruit salad trees (multiple varieties on one tree).

About this Event
Back in 2021 are Grafting Workshops where master grafters and fruit tree experts Wez Redden and Chris Day (Every day Sustainable Living and @Cockatoo Creek Farm) will teach you everything you need to know about grafting including the theory and hands on demonstrations of grafting scions (delicious varieties of fruit) onto rootstocks (the strong roots to grow your fruit). Once you’re comfortable, you will be able to graft your very own fruit trees to take home.
Three workshops are being offered on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th July from 9.30 – 12.30 and each session will include morning tea made from Sophie’s Patch home grown produce.
The course includes a premium grafting knife RRP $30, three rootstocks (such as one apple, one pear and one plum), a selection of scions for you to choose from (the fruit tree material you graft on top of the rootstock) and take home notes so you don’t forget this amazing new skill.
Limited left handed grafting knives are available (and highly recommended if you are left handed) for an additional $20.
Numbers are limited so get in early.
We are monitoring the COVID 19 pandemic situation and the governments health advice closely and will follow all directions.
At this stage we expect to be able to run this event, however if this changes we will of course refund your tickets.
