Fruit Tree Grafting
Bill Davis of the Western Washington Fruit Research Foundation and Dan Vorhis of Sky

Learn the basics of fruit tree grafting and rootstock and scionwood selection. Apples, pears, plums—create your own dwarf tree or start an espalier! A short lecture will be followed by a hands-on class (with rootstock, scionwood, and grafting supplies available for purchase). The lecture is free, but the hands-on class size is limited; please call or email to pre-register. More details to follow. Sky Nursery 18528 Aurora Ave N Shoreline, WA 98133 206-546-4851

Edible Garden Design
Brad Halm and Colin McCrate of the Seattle Urban Farm Company

Want to grow food in your yard this season? Join the owners of the Seattle Urban Farm Company as they guide you through designing your own "backyard farm". They'll discuss how to find the best spot on your property for a vegetable garden, how to lay out the space for maximum production and ease of use, and how to get your soil into condition to grow top quality organic vegetables. They'll also teach you how to incorporate fruit trees and berry bushes into your existing landscape. For those of you with more urban yards, they'll cover growing edibles in container gardens.
