Hands-On Citrus Tree Grafting
Sunday, September 8, 2019 | 2:00 – 5:00 p.m.
Pollinate Farm & Garden
2727 Fruitvale Ave, Oakland, CA 94601
Discover the art and science of citrus tree grafting. Learn about how to make new citrus trees, and how to add or change varieties on the older trees in your backyard orchard. We will discuss the importance of 'clean propagation' to avoid diseases, various rootstocks and characteristics, and the fruiting varieties you will be able to choose from for your own project (all certified disease free). After learning some basic theory about tree culture, techniques and tools, we will head out to the Pollinate orchard to graft an established citrus tree. Guided hands-on practice during this 3 hour class will have you taking home a newly grafted citrus tree of your own!
If you joined us for the stone fruit tree grafting workshop back in February, you know what an excellent class this is! It will sell out quickly. Reserve you space now!
* Due to recent Citrus Quarantine, and for the safety of California citrus crops, students may not travel with grafted project trees outside Alameda County. The same project materials fee will apply.
