Please bring a utility knife with fresh blades or a grafting knife. Grafting-specific knives will also be available for purchase.

Scion wood ($2)
Grafting knives ($18)

Chicago Rarities Orchard Project is a non-profit organization founded to establish community rare-fruit orchards in Chicago. These orchards, designed for reclaimed spaces, are dedicated to preserving a few of the thousands of varieties of tree fruit that aren't commonly commercially grown, while providing open space and educational opportunities to Chicagoans.
