City Fruit Offering Fruit Tree New Fruit Grafting Class

City Fruit is again offering useful courses for the permaculturist and home gardener/farmer.  This time it’s  Grafting New Fruit onto Existing Fruit Trees.

The class is being taught March 12, from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon at the Bradner Gardens Park classroom,  1733 Bradner Place S., in the Mt. Baker neighborhood.  Best bets for West Seattle folks is to take any of the regular buses from West Seattle downtown and catch Link light rail to the Mt. Baker station and walk or bike north

This course provides an introduction to the whip graft, cleft graft, bud graft and pleach. You can practice grafting and learn the in’s and out’s of rootstocks. Instructor Greg Giuliani grew up on a Snoqualmie Valley farm with a 1930’s orchard. He learned how to graft in order to re-create these heritage fruit varieties, not available in stores. He has been a member and instructor with the Seattle Tree Fruit Society for twelve years.
