Cherry trees, apple trees, pear trees, vines and also tomatoes and peppers are some of the grafted plant species that are commonly found in the orchards of our villages. Grafting is one of the oldest and most widespread agricultural techniques, but also one of the most unexplored.
From four working sessions, we will start experimenting with Solanaceae grafts. With “Chimera” we will start our experimental garden and we will do it by modifying tomato plants with homografts that we will produce, plant and take care of ourselves. The final objective is to be able to observe the changes and possible improvements that the union of peasant and academic knowledge can provide us within our gardens.
