Description: The least expensive way to have quality fruit tree varieties is to use a method called grafting. Sometimes, this is the only way to get a variety that is not commercially available. Learn several grafting techniques so you will be able to graft any type tree. In this class, each student will graft a citrus to take home. CPE credit is available. This same class is offered twice on the same day.

Price listed includes $10 for the grafting root stock and scion materials and $22 for a cleft grafting and budding knife. You need to sign up at least 14 days before the class.

Bonnie Childers is one of the most skilled fruit tree grafters in our area, and a superb teacher.
