About this Event
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.
The course includes a premium grafting knife RRP $41.50, 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.
If you are left handed please email Sophie on email@example.com to discuss knife options. You may wish to purchase a left handed knife for an additional $10.
Morning tea is included with cakes made using Sophie’s produce.
Numbers are limited so get in early.
