Grafters X Change is a bioregional eco-art event where fruit tree enthusiasts throughout Central New York converge to share scionwood and seeds, skills, fruit foods, and art projects in a collaborative and interdisciplinary setting. We are committed to ecological justice and honor ancestral legacies of multispecies collaboration and care.
Grafters X Change considers distributed and decentralized network models as vital components of resiliency and uses grafting as a metaphor for these digital and protocological connections. Mesh networks, peer-to-peer communications, and other ways of embedding information locally are welcome topics in future years.
Grafters X Change manifests as:
- scion branch and seed exchange
- hands-on demonstrations and workshops
- eco-art events
- walking tours
- living laboratory
