Grafters X Change

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
