HOS Arboretum

Our Annual Spring Propagation Fair is approaching and we need your help!

Join an awesome group of hardy volunteers scion cutting/collection at the Home Orchard Society Arboretum on the campus of Clackamas Community College.

What’s a scion you ask?…it’s the young, one year old growth on a fruit tree that is cut off then grafted to another tree or rootstock.  The genetics of this scion determines what kind of fruit the tree will bear.

All HOS “Work Parties” are FREE! and NO registration is required.

RAIN or SHINE event, please dress appropriately.  Bring hand pruners, thinning shears, or sharp scissors, long reach pruners also work well.

***Please note that if the college is closed due to inclimate weather OR if the temperatures are below freezing we will CANCEL today’s event.

Once on the CCC campus follow the signs to the BROWN parking lot.
