An apple tree grafting workshop is planned for Monday, March 20 at 6:00 P.M. at the Parkside Community Center at 120 W. Park Ave, DuBois, PA 15801, near the DuBois Medicine Shoppe. Tom Lisak will give guidance and assistance. Only 20 openings are available, so please pre-register. In the event of inclement weather causing postponement, pre-registration will also enable participants to be contacted.
A $5 fee for one root stock/bench graft will cover materials, root stock, scion wood, wax, tape and educational handouts. The fee will be collected at the door. Extra root stock/scions will be available. 
You will need to bring a WELL SHARPENED grafting knife or small kitchen knife.  When you go home, your tree should be planted asap in a pot.
This event is sponsored by the BUDS Gardeners.  For more information or to register, please contact Cheryl at cshenkle@verizon.net or call 814-371-3322.

All 20 of the seats were taken very quickly so there will be a second grafting workshop on Monday, March 27.  Unfortunately it is all filled too.


The BUDS Gardeners will continue to hold Workshops throughout the year.  They will vary with the season and some will attract more of the ladies.  There will continue to be no charge for these workshops other than for materials.


In February there was a Winter Germinating Workshop where we taught about seeds that actually germinate out in the freezing cold and snow.  It will probably be repeated this winter.
