Learn about the history and process of grafting fruit trees with a close up look at cleft grafting. Featuring local gardener and expert, Fred Lichti.
Designed for Adult (18+)
Workshop participants will be guided in the practice of cutting a scion (a small branch of fruit tree wood) and attaching it to an existing tree or young root stock. Grafting enables gardeners to grow several varieties of fruit, harvested at different times acrosss the season, on one tree.
For 30 years, Fred Lichti has been grafting apple trees. Experienced in both cleft and bud grafting, he has enjoyed propagating heritage varieties and grafted many of the 25 trees in his backyard orchard in Elmira.
This program is a partnership offering from the Region of Waterloo Libraries and the Township of Woolwich Climate Action Group.
