Air layering is a 4,000-year-old propagation method that allows you to root branches to a parent plant. Lloyd “the Fig Man” Kreitzer is an experienced gardener and owner of a certified nursery in which he propagates hundreds of figs and other trees for grower’s markets. Through a hands-on workshop, he will demonstrate the air layering technique.

For children aged 6-14 years, this Explorer Series will be held Wednesdays in June and July, beginning June 15th.

Follow the Open Space Explorer road to kid ingenuity! Kids from last year’s explorer program will be your guides. Each week one of them, with the support of staff and volunteers, will take you on a magical journey through the world of nature art. You will make found-object monsters, “emerald” bird baths, twig boats and much more. Let your imagination soar over the rainbow with us this summer.

It’s free, but pre-registration for one day or for the whole series is required. Please register by calling 505-897-8831.
