Black Barn Farm tour
Join us at Black Barn Farm in our old apple packing shed during an early Spring morning while the moon is waxing and the sap is starting to flow as you learn the ancient art of grafting your very own fruit trees.
Charlie will take you through the different types of grafts, why graft at all, best time of year to graft, knife safety, rootstocks, scion wood and permaculture tips and tricks. You will be taken through a grafting demonstration and of course coaching through plenty of grafting practice before you eventually try your skills on your very own apple trees to take home.
This workshop is limited to just 25 tickets so book early, last year sold out.
