I offer workshops at my farmden in New York’s Hudson Valley (and sometimes elsewhere). This is an opportunity for me to teach where I grow, so each workshop is a very hands-on experience.

If you are in the New Paltz, NY area or are willing to travel, this is a worthwhile trip. Workshop length depends on the content. Note: Occasional workshops are held offsite.

GRAFTING WORKSHOP, with Lee Reich, PhD, farmdener* and writer

Joyce Kilmer wrote:  Poems are made by fools like me; But only God can make a tree. Not so!! You and I can also make trees, by grafting.

Learn how to make your own fruit tree using the ancient art of grafting.
       • The how, why, and when of grafting
       • A demonstration of two types of easy and useful grafts: Topworking, which is a way to change the variety of, or add varieties to, an established tree; and whip-grafting, which is a way to make your own fruit tree from the start.
       • Then it’s your turn . . . graft a pear tree and take it home to plant.
