London Orchard Project – Tree Grafting Workshop – Saturday 25th February 2012

This Saturday 25th Feb our friends at Stepney City Farm will be running a fruit tree grafting workshop.  Learn how to create a grafted fruit tree from nursery-grown root-stock and scion (cuttings) we’ve gathered from orchards across London.Grafting is the technique by which apple trees are propagated.  Through grafting we can combine the root-stock we want (which determines the health and eventual height of the tree) with our favourite apple varieties.  So come along to the farm and learn how to do this yourself.The workshop will be led by David Lopez of Stepney City Farm, and costs £5.  To book a place contact david@stepneycityfarm.org.

Workshop 11am – 12pm (followed by optional volunteering session 1pm  – 4pm)

Where: Stepney City Farm, Stepney Way, London E1 3DG

Cost: £5 (£3 concessionary)
