Portland Fruit Tree Project

Bud Grafting Workshop (hands-on workshop)

Saturday July 16th 10am-1pm


In this hands-on workshop you will learn the basic techniques of bud grafting (budding). This method of grafting will allow you to combine different varieties and species of fruit into a single tree more quickly and with greater success rates than other grafting methods. This fun workshop will be an opportunity for you to gain a basic understanding of different bud grafting methods and when they should be used.

About the instructor: 

Rick Shory has always worked with plants. In addition to gardening, he has grown and pruned fruit trees, including over 30 years experience grafting. In 2010, he returned to the Pacific Northwest after ten years in Colorado, where he worked in environmental field research and had a home orchard and permaculture. His botanical specialization is grasses.

Pre-registration and pre-payment is required.

This workshop is free of charge (though contributions are gladly accepted) for tree owners who have registered fruit trees with us. Otherwise, please contribute the standard workshop fee of $25. Sliding scale options are provided for those who feel unable to contribute at that level.  In addition, a limited amount of full scholarships and work-trade scholarships are available.

This workshop will be hosted by one of our registered tree sites in SE Portland, in the Powellhurst-Gilbert neighborhood. Exact location details will be provided after you sign up.

This event is made possible with support from East Portland Action Plan
