Grafting and Aerial Layer Propagation
Harry is passionate about gardening in small spaces and has been lovingly tending to his fully organic micro orchard garden for 15 years.
At 72 square metres, this garden demonstrates you don’t need a large plot of land to grow a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. Harry planned, constructed and planted the garden with his daughter to encourage science concepts through organic gardening. Clever grafting methods yield citruses, apples, pomegranates and stone fruits. The all year rotation of herbs and seasonal vegetables supplement the food requirements for of a family of five.
In the workshop you will gain an understanding of the tools, equipment and seasonal timing requirements for each grafting/propagation technique as well as how to take care of grafts and propagated plants during their initial growing period.
The Backyard Harvest Festival is opening home food gardens for tours and workshops get you inspired to grow your own fresh healthy food. This includes include sessions on keeping backyard chooks and quails, organic pest and disease management, composting, aquaponics, and fruit tree pruning techniques – as well as guided tours of some of Darebin’s most abundant private food gardens and community gardens.
