Event Description

Learn how to propagate woody perennials from hard wood cuttings and layering for your own food forest plantings. Fall is the best time to select cuttings of many different types of shrubs and bushes to root through the winter dormant season. Learn how to strike cuttings from currents, gooseberries, grapes, autumn olive, seabuckthorn, kiwi and more at this time of year. We will also demonstrate layering as a propagation technique, which is typically done for filberts,  blueberries and other plants that don't strike roots from cuttings so easily.


Inspiration Farm is an established but evolving permaculture system that has dozens of plants to take cuttings from and observe established systems this  makes it a wonderful location to host this type of workshop. 

Trained Permaculture designer Brian Kerkvliet will lead the group through all the steps necessary and explain the finer points of simple plant propagation for this time of year. He has been propagating his own nursery stock for the past 6 years in order to help develop Inspiration Farm and other food forests.
When: Sunday November 24th 1-4
