This Saturday (Jan. 16) the Golden Chapter of the California Rare Fruit Growers is hosting its annual scion exchange from noon to 3 pm at Malcolm X Elementary School in Berkeley. This is a great opportunity not only to get scions (cuttings for grafting) from an astounding variety of fruit trees, but to see grafting demonstrations and talk to really knowledgeable people about growing fruit trees in this area. There’s also a silent auction, a raffle, and some tastings. You can also buy some rootstocks there and have a grafting expert do the graft for you. A $4 donation is requested to help cover costs. This is a very cool event that only comes once a year. If you’re into fruit-growing, don’t miss it!
