Citrus and Grafting

Ray Sheehy

WHERE:

Merritt College Landscape/Hort Dept
12500 Campus Drive
Oakland, CA 94619

TIME:

Noon to 4:00 PM (Pot Luck Noon till 1:00 PM)

INFO:

Ray Sheehy will be speaking to us about growing and grafting citrus trees. He has an extensive collection of citrus growing in Woodland, and brings citrus to the scion exchanges each year for sale.

This should be a very informative event, and there may be a chance for some hands on grafting practice depending on the availability of rootstocks and clean scion wood.

Merritt also is having their plant sale the weekend before and we will have a chance to make purchases from the leftovers.

Finally, the campus has an ever expanding permaculture style "food forest" growing on their hillside which is a delight to wander through, with many plants to see, taste, and smell.

This event is free and open to the public.
Newcomers are always welcome -- Do bring a friend!
