Bud Grafting Workshop with Scott Farm Orchardist Zeke Goodband

707 Kipling Road
Dummerston, VT

In this hands-on workshop you’ll learn how to graft four different varieties of heirloom apples onto one small apple tree that you’ll take home! At Scott Farm, we bud graft in mid-August when the bark is in the slip stage and the buds have developed for the following year. These buds are slipped into the bark of a small apple tree to add or change a variety.  A small tree, a selection of heirloom varieties to choose from, and all materials and tools will be supplied.  Bud grafting knives will be available for purchase after the workshop. Held rain or shine, the class is $65 per person and limited to 15 participants. Register online.
