Heritage Apple Day

Posted by:

March 18, 2017

This free annual event celebrates our region’s history by identifying and preserving ancient apple varieties throughout the Valley and in surrounding communities. Folks are encouraged to bring cuttings from their favorite apple trees, even those that have long since produced fruit, to graft onto the provided rootstock – all free of charge! Also on hand will be a large supply of cuttings (scions) for grafting. Cashiers’ residents Ken Fisher, Trevor Howard, Will Wardowski, and others will provide a workshop and demonstration of apple grafting techniques. Anyone interested in gardening, orchards, natural landscaping, or the social heritage of apple growing will benefit from the knowledge and experience offered by this group of experts. Local artist, Rebecca Coulson, will be at Heritage Apple Day! She will have her easel set up and will be painting apples as well as scenes from the day! Come watch her paint and ask questions about media and techniques! There will also be a host of children’s activities and apple treats!
