The Home Orchard Society board wants to thank our many members and friends who have been loyal supporters over the past 45 years!  The loss of the Fruit Propagation Fair is a disappointment to all of you, and for HOS it is a tragedy! This event is the major fund raiser for our year-long activities.  So – we have a plan!  We are going to offer you the opportunity to purchase scions and have them shipped to your door.  Also, we will custom-graft trees, just as we would have done at the Fruit Propagation Fair.  We know many of you had been planning on a new baby tree this year, and we are going to try to make that happen.

Our scion list will be posted soon. Please look at our extensive list, make your selections (scions or grafted trees) and send in your order right away.  This project will require a lot of work, but with the help of our fantastic volunteers, we can do it. The financial integrity of HOS needs your support.  As always, we will do our best for you.
