Culture Connect Featured Event
Do you like apples? Ever wanted to grow your own apple tree? The Noah Webster House and the Connecticut Horticultural Society are combining forces on a one-day apple tree workshop. Lead by author and accomplished gardener Tom Christopher, the two-hour workshop will cover a brief history of apple trees and their important role in early American history; an introduction to the different methods of grafting apple trees (the only way to ensure that you get the desired apple); and a hands-on experience making your own grafts. Each participant will come away with two semi-dwarf heritage apple trees. While we will provide all the materials that you need, if you want to replicate your favorite apple tree, please feel free bring to the class cuttings from last year's growth. (These can be cut a couple of weeks in advance. However, be sure to keep the cut ends moist with damp paper towels or newspaper and leave in the refrigerator in a plastic bag.).
