The orchard in lordship rec is being developed using forest garden principles and it is hoped that some people who attend will be local people who can use the knowledge gained to help with the ongoing development of the orchard, if they wish to. However, it’s not restricted to local people, all welcome.
Tutors will be Michelle Lawson, professional gardener who also attended the Urban Orchard Management course and is keen to share grafting skills; and Marina O’Connell, organic fruit grower and permaculture tutor from The Apricot Centre.
You will go home with a young apple tree in a pot, so please bring something to carry it in.
