Hi Diane, Nice to hear from you! I'm trying to pull something together for September. Getting speakers is always the hard part. But sending through an email soon on some things that are coming up. ~ A

Just found your message on my wall. Yes, we are very interested in propagation. From reading up, it seems some trees like lemons can be done from cuttings so we might start with those first.

Our idea is you could have a group of people propagating fruit trees as a hobby and giving the trees away to community projects.  That will take a while...first we have to learn how to graft or keep cuttings alive!

Hello Diane,

Welcome to Ooooby!! Hurray, a blog buddy has made it over here. This website is a nifty way to see who is out there and what they're doing. The school gardens sound neat. We'll have to keep in touch and swap news about community gardening projects.

Merry Christmas,

Wayne
