Free Apple Grafting Workshop Wednesday, 3/16
6:00 – 9:00 PM
Watauga County Agricultural Conference Center, Boone
Ron and Suzanne Joyner, of Big Horse Creek Farm in Lansing, will teach a grafting workshop on propagating apple trees on Wednesday, 3/16, from 6:00 – 9:00 PM at the Watauga County Agricultural Conference Center in Boone. The Joyners are nationally-known for their conservation and propagation of old Southern Apple varieties. The grafting workshop taught by the Joyners will be hands-on, with participants able to learn via lecture and photographs, and then by trying-out the actual tools of the trade. Apple rootstocks will be available for purchase at the workshop, so if participants choose, they can graft several trees to then bring home and plant themselves. Information about collecting scionwood samples for grafting (and much more about apples) can be found at their website: http://www.bighorsecreekfarm.com/horticulture.htm
