MASTER GARDENER PROGRAM — Workshops & Events
Imagine having sweet and colorful table or wine grapes growing right in your own backyard. And what if you could start your own vines through cuttings taken from other vines? Grapevines are wonderful producers of luscious fruit, but they require consistent annual pruning to be at their best. Join Master Gardeners for a hands-on workshop on young (1- to 3-year-old) grapevine pruning and propagation.
Participants may take cuttings home if desired.
Part One: View a short video from the comfort of your home.
Part Two: Join us in-person at our demonstration vineyard to practice your skills. This entails a 5- to 10-minute walk up a steep hill. Those with mobility issues may drive. Dress for the weather and bring water, garden gloves, and a pair of sharpened loppers or hand bypass pruners if you have them. This part two is fully outside. Masks are optional.
Space is limited and participants will work in small groups.
