10 am - 1 pm. Through our efforts to conserve open space, Greenwich Land Trust also maintains a living link to the agricultural history of Greenwich. On several of our orchard preserves we protect heritage varieties of apples grown when the town was known for its fruit exports. Grafting these varieties onto younger trees allows these historical apples to continue to flourish in the region, and gives people the opportunity to taste a little of Greenwich's past. Charles Day, a former commercial fruit-grower, will lead a hands-on workshop on grafting science and technique. Participants will have the opportunity to hone their grafting skills on real trees in one of the Greenwich Land Trust's beautiful orchard preserves.

But when his eldest daughter Geeta, aged 14 and his second daughter Babita, aged 12, bash up a group of boys from the neighborhood during a teasing incident, Mahavir realizes his girls have inherited his talent.
