Fruit Tree Grafting Workshop Notebaert Nature Museum
In this hands-on workshop, you will graft and take home a low-maintenance
fruit tree; Asian Pear, European Pear, or Quince. You will be instructed on
how to graft or join two pieces of wood together with "whip and tongue".
And you will have time to practice this technique. We will discuss how to
work with rootstock that has a larger diameter than your scion wood.
Cost: $30 / $25 for Slow Food members
Materials: Pear, apple and quince rootstock
will be available as well as scion wood at no charge.
Grafting knife will be available for $15. A utility knife or
a sharp thin knife can be used in place of a grafting knife.
Please let us know in advance if you would like to order a grafting knife.
Workshop is not advised for young children.
