Our Picks: Saturday's Top Events
Don’t be fooled this year. There’s a lot happening on Saturday but first, here are some April Fools’ Day facts:
It’s April Fools’ Day, not April Fool’s Day.
It’s also known as All Fools’ Day.
The French term for April Fools’ is Poisson d’Avril, which translates to April Fish.
In Scotland, April Fools’ Day is celebrated over two days. April 1 is traditionally called Hunt the Gawk (cuckoo bird).
Nobody knows how the day began.
Now, here are four things you can do Saturday, April 1.

PRUNING AND GRAFTING FRUIT TREES
Mike Hebb describes the basics of pruning apple trees for aesthetics, health, longevity, better fruit, ease of harvesting and management. Hebb’s hands-on grafting workshop shows how grafting can be used to control many of the characteristics of growing trees, including size, timing of maturity and fruiting, disease resistance, drought resistance and fruit varieties. He’ll cover cultivars, asexual propagation, whip grafts, nurse grafts, bark grafts, cleft grafts, bridge grafts, top working, inarching, brace graft, graft compatibility, budding and reference material. Participants will practice the mechanics of grafting in the workshop and discuss aftercare. A materials list will be sent to each registrant.
