Science Club: Grafting Cider Apple Trees

Join us in celebrating education and climate literacy this month in our Science Club Event:

Grafting Cider Apple Trees!

We'll help you get ready for Earth Day by learning about scion wood, rootstock selection, and grafting with us guiding you along the way. You'll take home three cider apple trees that you grafted - it's the ultimate DIY. And don't worry about having enough space to plant these trees - all will be on dwarf or semi-dwarf rootstock, so you can keep them in pots or plant them in an urban lot.

Learn some of the fun on the orchard side of things. As you know, we're all about the fruit and grow some of the fruit that goes into each glass of 1859 cider. Now, you'll learn how to graft your own to start your very own cider orchard.  And, enjoy 20% off your cider tab for all Science Club participants for this event. 

Space is limited so registration is required. Click on the "Registration" tab and bring a copy of your receipt to class. Sorry, no refunds or rainchecks as this is a one-time, special event.

This event is Saturday, April 15th starting at 3:00 pm. Please note this class will be staggered on time to allow one-on-one time with each person - please sign up for your appropriate block and be punctual. Dress appropriate as we'll be outside due to the microbial issues soils can have on fermenting cider. All tools will be supplied, but if you have your own pruners, please feel free to bring them.

Cost is $30 per person (couples need to both register) for this hands on Science Series event.

Pre-Registration is required.
