The next class in the Urban Farming Options Series, Vegetable Grafting, is next Thursday, June 19, 2014, here in beautiful downtown Fort Worth at the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension office in the Tarrant Plaza Building. After Dr. Masabni’s live webinar which will begin at 9:00 am, we will have plants and supplies handy to try our hands at tomato grafting. You will be able to take your grafted plants home and evaluate their performance. We should be finished by lunch time, but morning snacks and coffee will be provided.
