There will be a short, guided-walk at the end of the day to enjoy the sights and sounds of winter before warmer weather arrives.

On April 9th, 10am-12pm, join an Apple Grafting 101 workshop at Branch Hill Farm. Learn from their Executive Director (and experienced orchardist) Jared Kane on best practices for apple grafting. By the end of the class, each person will have completed grafting their own small apple tree to take home, using a scion (living shoot) collected from one of several varieties of local heirloom trees. If time and weather permit, the group will also take a short walk to tour the newly planted Preservation Orchard at Branch Hill Farm! This workshop is $10 per person, and limited to 20 people, so sign up early!
