Avocado Grafting — Sun 29 November — 10 am
Meet at Mt Heslington Rd (off River Terrace Rd, Brightwater) wet or fine. Take the right hand branch of the shared driveway.
Bring along those avocado seedlings and learn how to graft them! A small, sharp knife would be handy. Scionwood available! BYO lunch and something for the sales table.
This property has been owned by Hilary and Andrew since 1993.
Timetable: 10 am grafting followed by lunch and sales table/auction.
Then at 1pm property tour involving a meander around the olives (about 800 trees on 4 acres hillside). Check out some grafts done on a previous TCA visit in October 2007 and the six trial macadamias up the hill. Also stroll around the ponds and look at the natives and edibles planted around them, most of which were grown here from cuttings or seed.
