About:

The 2012 Annual Spring Propagation Fair is a free event, open to the public, and is designed to support home orchardists, vegetable gardeners and native plant enthusiasts in and around the S. Willamette Valley.

We are focusing on a genetically diverse array of apples, pears and grapes that have proven adaptability to our growing region, disease resistance, and have unique characteristics for culinary use, storage, etc.

Flyer for 2012 Propagation Fair

Hundreds of varieties of scions (fruit-tree cuttings) and vegetable seed, will be shared by local fruit enthusiasts and seed-savers at the Fair. Rootstocks and grafting assistance will be available for a
nominal fee.

Bring your own labeled cuttings and divisions of figs, grapes, berries and other fruits to share freely with others at the Fair, along with fresh seed, plants and divisions of all types of food crops and native
plants.

Ask questions of experienced local gardeners and a broad array of our bioregion’s foremost gardening education non-profits. Hear expert speakers throughout the day.
