Thursday 28th March 2019 - 7:30pm - 9:45pm
Ziferblat, Northern Quarter, Manchester
Join us for an evening of heritage variety apple tree grafting in the Northern Quarter, Manchester.
We’ll supply all you need to take away at least one dwarfing (M27) or semi vigorous (MM106) rootstock. With locally sourced heritage variety cultivars to choose from we’ll teach you a few of the not-so-hard-graft techniques, tips and tricks to extend or start your orchard.
Don’t know your scions from your rootstocks? “What’s a cultivar again?”, “Ahhh I keep spooning my cuts!”. All terms, techniques, shortcuts and vocabulary will be clearly explained by our own in-house expert Dan Hasler from The Orchard Project.
Hosted at Ziferblat on Edge Street in the Northern Quarter for its easy access to the city centre, great refreshments on tap all night and let’s face it, a quirky room with a chalk board and lots of retro desk space.
This is primarily for our network of Orchard Leaders/Carers from community orchards across Greater Manchester but open to anyone who wants a cheap tree and has a willingness to learn.
We have the room booked from 7:30, please arrive promptly, you’ll enter at street level, ring the bell for access, go upstairs and see the reception desk. Grab yourself a free drink or snack from the plethora of options in the communal kitchen and then ask for directions to The Classroom.
