April 7 – Iowa City, IA, 10:00am to 12:00pm. To register contact Shannon Bielicke at Johnson County Extension Office at 319-337-2145 or email@example.com
Each participant gets two apple rootstock (EMLA7 free standing semi-dwarf) which they self-graft and take home with them. If they want to bring in some of their own scion wood that is fine as well. Ideally it should be harvested before third week of March. It should be new growth from previous year and be somewhere close to pencil thickness in diameter.

Fee structure is $35 per person or $60 for couple ($30 for any two or more registering together and includes 2 rootstock for each person). Additional rootstock will be available for a cost of $5 each. We will need at least 12 people pre-registered.
