We will be working with Tom Fettig who will teach us how to graft scion wood onto rootstock to create a strong and productive tree. Grafting is the only way to produce a plant variety identical to the original source. Doing it yourself is a much less expensive way to start a small backyard orchard and you can plant the varieties that grow well on Cape Cod. Tom will discuss the habits of different sized trees and go over what are appropriate trees for your backyard along with basic pruning techniques. Participants will be able to bring home an apple tree sapling.  This will be held in West Barnstable.  We will email the address of the workshop once you have signed-up.
