Our Global Family children’s garden at City Farm is happy to have the expertise of the California Rare Fruit Growers showing people how to graft apple trees.
Local gardeners, fruit growers, and permaculture practitioners are invited to attend, learn about and practice techniques of grafting fruit trees at this "hands-on" public workshop, led by Dr. Joseph Sabol, Nell Wade and other volunteer experts from the Central Coast chapter of the California Rare Fruit Growers (CRFG).
You will learn how to graft various types of “prunings" from locally growing apple trees to rootstock, all provided by these local CRFG workshop leaders. No grafting experience is necessary and it is not hard and lots of fun to learn. Rootstock for apple trees will be available for $3.00 per root and all proceeds used to support the volunteer activities of this CRFG chapter.
City Farm is located at the north end of Calle Joaquin Road off the Los Osos Valley Road exit in San Luis Obispo. Take LOVR and turn onto Calle Joaquin Road frontage road that goes past the AAA, America Tire, Motel 6 and two car dealerships. Park in the cul-de-sac.
