Grafting Masterclass 11 & 14 Sept (9am-12pm Fairfield)

If you came to the recent Permablitz at the West Brunswick Food Forest, you might have been lucky enough to have a pruning tutorial with John Pinniger of the Heritage Fruits Society (a not for profit whose sole purpose is to preserve heritage fruit varieties).

John has just announced he will run a couple of 'masterclasses' in grafting for those Permaculture designers and others who would like to improve their skills - or learn the basics.

This will be hands-on. It will involve learning the reasons for, and the science of grafting, and then some practice. Budding will also be discussed, (although Winter is not the best time to do it). Your questions answered.

John's a great teacher, very knowledgable and happy to offer explanations. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn from an expert, it won't cost you a dollar and you'll help a very worthy cause.

Does it cost?
There is no cost, but the third hour of the three-hour session will be assistance with the grafting of Heritage Fruits trees, including potting, labelling, etc. (part learning, part application)

When is it?
Sessions are planned for 9 AM - 12AM on Thursday 11th September or Sunday 14th September.
Maximum 5 per session - more sessions if there is enough interest

Where? Location will be Fairfield, accessible by public transport - address sent with acceptance.

RSVP: Please book by emailing John at cjpinn@bigpond.net.au with the subject line GRAFTING and your preferred date.
