VEGETABLE GRAFTING WORKSHOP MU Extension, along with Lincoln University’s Innovative Small Farmer Outreach Program, will be conducting a Vegetable Grafting Workshop at three sites on February 15th and 16th. The workshops will be held at the MU Extension Offices in Johnson and Platte Counties and at Lincoln University’s Urban Impact Center at 10th and Paseo in Downtown KC. You’ll hear from our State Vegetable Specialist about the history of vegetable grafting and its applicability to our growing conditions. Most importantly, you’ll get to try first-hand the techniques and learn from experience. The workshop is only $10 and registration is due by February 11.
