The Urban Garden Center will be hosting Grow More Food: Plant Propagation Outdoor Expo on July 7–8. Researchers, Extension agents, Master Gardeners, and CTAHR students will use hands-on teaching demonstrations to teach food producers and gardeners how to propagate crops via seeds, cuttings, air-layering, and grafting. Air-layering/grafting workshops are scheduled for 8:30, 9:30, and 10:30 a.m. and will last 45 minutes each. July 7 is aimed at agricultural producers; also on this day there will be educational booths from HDOA, USDA Farm Service Agency, and other agencies, companies, and non-profits, as well as CTAHR programs such as the Ag Incubator, SOAP, Master Gardeners, ADSC Seed Lab, and Sustainable Pest Management Lab, so growers can learn about the many public and private ag programs available. July 8 is aimed at urban and backyard producers and will also be the OUG’s Second Saturday event, including a plant sale. Participants can sign up for state, federal, and non-profit programs and ask questions face to face. You can register online here; the Expo is $20.
