Change of date for the Orchard day!!!

New date for the Orchard day
Wednesday 11 March 2015

Due to low numbers we are moving the orchard day to Wednesday 11 March.
Places are limited to 15 people so book your place by emailing with your name, email and phone number. 

What's involved:
This day will cover fruit tree care and maintenance, including pruning (both restorative and formative), mulching, attracting beneficial predators and soil microbiology. The Urban Orchard Project advocate a permaculture approach to orchard care; teaming with, not working against nature. Conventional fruit growing uses an arsenal of chemicals and synthetic fertilisers, degrading ecosystems and contributing to climate change. Our approach seeks to enhance biodiversity, create healthy soil and build human communities, all while providing healthy, organic fruit for all.

Hopefully I'll see some of you there.
