West Virginia State University Extension Service to Host Tree Grafting Workshop
INSTITUTE, W.Va. – West Virginia State University (WVSU) Extension Service will host a free tree grafting workshop on Saturday, March 30, from 9 a.m. to noon at the WVSU Economic Development Center (EDC) in Charleston. 

“Participants in this workshop will learn how to propagate fruit and nut trees through hands-on grafting techniques,” said WVSU Extension Agent Kristie Martin. Grafting is a horticultural technique in which plant tissues are joined in order to continue their growth together. 

Topics will include:
  • How grafting will benefit the health and productivity of fruit and nut trees;
  • When to graft;
  • The selection of rootstock; and
  • Choosing and using the right tools for the job.
Space is limited, and registration is required. To register, visit wvstateu.edu/extensionor contact WVSU Extension Service at (304) 482-0178.

The WVSU EDC is located at 1506 Kanawha Blvd. West in Charleston. Parking is available in the EDC lot or at the nearby Beltone store.
