Learn the value of heirloom apples from one of the preeminent apple experts in the country. Dan Bussey, a modern-day Johnny Appleseed, will describe the variety of apples you can grow in backyards and urban environments. Heirloom apples offer a wider variety of tastes than most commonly found grocery varieties and are easy to grow. For the adventurous, the class will feature a grafting demonstration that allows you to grow more varieties than you can find at your local garden center.
