Fall Propagation of Fruit and Nut Trees

CCE Tompkins, 615 Willow Avenue Ithaca
Cost: $5-$10 sliding scale
Start planning your edible food forest this fall! Sean Dembrosky of Edible Acres will demonstrate techniques for propagating edible tree species, such as stratifying seeds of a variety of fruit and nut trees and striking cuttings from fruit bushes. Ripe paw paws from Cornell's orchard will be available to taste, and participants will learn how to propagate their own paw paw trees from the seeds they take home. Participants will also learn to make cuttings of currant and jostaberry bushes and to propagate nut trees such as hazelnut from seed, and can also take home these propagation materials for their own gardens and homesteads.
