Tomato grafting workshop at UMES for anyone who grows tomatoes

PRINCESS ANNE – Tomato grafting is the focus of a March 10 workshop at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.  The hands-on, informative class is limited to the first 20 registrants and will be held in the Agricultural Research Building on campus.

Anyone who grows tomatoes that are not resistant to air- and soil-borne diseases should attend.  Participants will learn the history and science of grafting as well as receive hands-on instruction about tomato grafting techniques.  In addition, every participant will leave the workshop with grafted plants to take home.

Registration for the Tomato Grafting Workshop costs $20 per person and includes lunch.  To register visit tomatografting2018.Eventbrite.com.  For more information, contact the Small Farms Program offices at 410-651-6693/6070 or by email to Errol Mattox at eamattox@umes.edu.  Persons needing special accommodations to attend must contact the offices at least 2 weeks in advance.   Additional information can be found at www.umessmallfarm.com.

The workshop is an IFARMS presentation sponsored by University of Maryland Extension at UMES in partnership with the University of Maryland Eastern Shore as well as Delaware State University.
