One review, from last year’s class, said, “On April 10th, I had the pleasure of attending an orcharding/grafting class led by Brian of Winter Cove Farm. The workshop was filled with information about various varieties of fruit trees, the best uses for each variety available, and the proper/recommended ways of caring for one’s orchard. Within three hours, I had not only grafted 6 different trees to plant in my orchard, but also had the opportunity to discuss hugelkulture planting, permaculture ideas, the importance of soil structure and organisms within, and some aspects of companion planting. I would encourage anyone planning to start or rehabilitate an orchard to attend this workshop next spring or to contact Winter Cove for growing and care information. Brian made learning to graft so easy to learn I was left wondering when class was over why I hadn’t somehow inherently known this skill!”
