Greenwich Land Trust Apple Grafting Workshop

03/29/2017

370 Round Hill Road, Greenwich, CT Phone: 203-629-2151.

10 am - 1 pm. Through our efforts to conserve open space, Greenwich Land Trust also maintains a living link to the agricultural history of Greenwich. On several of our orchard preserves we protect heritage varieties of apples grown when the town was known for its fruit exports. Grafting these varieties onto younger trees allows these historical apples to continue to flourish in the region, and gives people the opportunity to taste a little of Greenwich's past. Charles Day, a former commercial fruit-grower, will lead a hands-on workshop on grafting science and technique. Participants will have the opportunity to hone their grafting skills on real trees in one of the Greenwich Land Trust's beautiful orchard preserves.

former wrestler who was forced to give up his dreams of winning gold for India in nternational wrestling due to a lack of financial support. He resolves to train his future son to represent India someday in his passion sport. But destiny has other plans. Over two decades, Mahavir's faith in his dream dwindles as he is blessed with four children, all girls. But when his eldest daughter Geeta, aged 14 and his second daughter Babita, aged 12, bash up a group of boys from the neighborhood during a teasing incident, Mahavir realizes his girls have inherited his talent. With hope restored, he relentlessly pursues his goal of transforming his daughters into world-class wrestlers. Forcing them to train with the village boys, Mahavir inspires them to fight to win despite the odds and to go for gold, no matter what
