The Agrarian Sharing Network (ASN) is a decentralized, collaborative network, focused on distributing plant diversity to friends and neighbors and creating a shareable reproducible model for others to implement.
It’s as much about the plants as it is about the people.

Scion collection

We need scion cuttings from established, IDENTIFIED varieties of fruit trees to distribute through our regional propagation fairs. If you have cuttings to donate, please watch the cutting and storage instructional video below. Here’s a link to our scion-collection database. Another 100% volunteer-driven effort from ASN. Please enter details of scion you have collected in our google form database, here. If that isn’t working, try here.

Call for volunteers!

Our propagation fairs are 100% volunteer driven, and we need your help to keep it all working. If you have time and energy to give, and would like to meet an amazing bunch of people, sign up here.

    Couldn’t attend the Jan 7 event, but reviewing Nick’s video it occurs to me that I will have some scion to contribute when I prune my plum tree, a sweet yellow plum which was a heavy producer in this, my first year on the property. Tree is not tagged, so I can’t say what the variety is. Maybe I’ll label it Folly Golden Plum. It produced about 150 pounds last summer, and has produced some good plum sauce and wine. Question is- how much scion should I shoot for to make a contribution to the various fairs?

      Thank you, Hal. And if you are able to cut scion this year, too, that would be wonderful! I see you’re part of our Facebook group – where all the organizing happens!

    This is so totally cool. We moved to Selma, Oregon and have planted 2 orchards on our land. This is like the Rare Fruit Growers Exchange in Sebastopol, CA where we used to live. I’m so excited!
