We will be grafting Avocados. If you have grown your own trees from seeds, bring them along. If you have scion wood to share, please make sure to label that we know the varieties.
Also: starting Avocado trees from seed. Checking on previous air layering. Demonstrate and practice air layering on a guava (possibly in more than one location if you want to practice a lot!). Potting up some of the figs we started at the last Propagation meetup.
Best of all, we are going to learn how to eat lots and lots of Avocados In the form of Guacamole. Make sure you bring some chips (organic please!!), crackers, or other items good to eat with Guacamole.
Meeting are the 3rd Sunday of the month starting at 3pm. We will present and practice different propagation techniques throughout the year, including grafting, air layering, starting plants from seed, cuttings and so forth. More details about each meeting are announced closer to the date.
