Learn to propagate productive plants for your garden and food forest, and take them home. Propagate using a variety of methods:

Rhubarb
Fig
Elderberry

Groundcovers/alpine strawberries
Lemon verbena

Participants will then be able to propagate their own material at home, as well as go home with 20+ propagated plants during the workshop
