More is More Edible Plants Workshop -Grafting, Propagation and Yield Multiplying.

Ever wanted to learn about the multiplying of plants.  There are a multitude of different propagation methods using root, stem and leaf.  Laura will work through the techniques making sure you fully understand each method.  We will also discuss various methods for increasing yield of the fruit.   Discussion will be encouraged please bring your questions! 

 

After a short break we will jump into the topic of grafting.  This is our way of propagating woody materials.  Laura will discuss all the dos and don’ts to get the best from your grafting attempts.  Each participant will have a minimum of 2 pieces of rootstock and 2 scion pieces.  Using your own grafting tool/knife graft your potted trees under Laura’s guidance. 

 

Date: Saturday April 27, 2024 (Perfect timing to get your trees in the ground)

 

Location:  Ettyville, Ontario just West of Bourget, ON (Plantagenet, ON)

    Farmgal’s Farm is a location I’ve been dying to spend more time at.  She has a beyond organic nearly self-sustaining farm.  Over many years she has worked her land into the beautiful abundance that feeds her family including supplementing the fur babies’ diets.   She has built a food forest using a variety of native and unique species.  We will breathe in the fresh country air (weather pending) while we watch Laura share her knowledge.  The workshop will be moved indoors (PET FRIENDLY).  Please dress for the weather in case we are outside.
