Apple Tree Grafting Workshops

Yancey County Cooperative Extension will hold a tree-grafting workshop on March 4th and 6th 2014.  The same workshop will be offered four different times and will last two hours each. On March 4th it will be offered at 9:00 am and 6:00 pm and on March 6th, the same workshop will be offered at 9:00 am and 6:00 pm at the Yancey County Extension Center, 10 Orchard Drive, Burnsville, NC.  Each session will be limited to twenty participants, which will allow for more one on one with the instructors. This workshop is designed to give participants a basic understanding of how to graft a tree (primarily apple trees).  Attendees will learn several different grafting techniques as well as how to collect proper scions (cuttings). Everyone is encouraged to bring his or her own scions to the workshop where they will get the opportunity to graft their own trees. Each person will receive two semi-dwarf rootstocks and will have the opportunity to purchase a limited number of additional rootstock. The cost is $10.00 per person.  If you would like more information or wish to register for a workshop, please contact Yancey County Cooperative Extension at (828) 682-6186.
