September Monthly Meeting with Speaker John Wilson
September 28, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Join us on September 28th for an outstanding presentation on fruit tree pruning and grafting by John Wilson. His bio:
I was born in 1945 which makes me older than dirt now. After being discharged from the Army in 1968 I found a box of old Organic Gardening and Farming magazines. I’ve been hooked on gardening the organic way ever sense. In my life I have gardened in San Diego (with a salt distilling pond on the other side of our fence.), Napa California, Spokane Washington, and in Weatherford and Moore Oklahoma. I’ve probably made enough compost to fill a large barn and have it overflowing. I’ve read enough books on gardening to fill my bedroom. I wrote a organic gardening column for my local paper in San Diego and wrote timely articles for the webpage of my local garden club in Bay Point, Ca. And though I have wanted to become a Master Gardener I’ve always been to far from where the classes were being given, the classes filled, or otherwise already committed at the time of the classes. 10 years ago I Attended a grafting workshop sponsored by the California Rare Fruit Growers and began grafting fruit trees. I now do workshops on grafting to pass the knowledge on. I found I needed a good knowledge of pruning. And so I did my research. Hopefully I will be able to save others from having to do the same.
