What we do

Working entirely with volunteers, we

  • run seasonal events, such as our Apple Day and Wassail to celebrate our orchard heritage (see our events page);
  • share our enthusiasm for orchards with all sorts of people through talks, walks, events and environnmental education sessions for children;
  • teach people practical orchard management skills;
  • encourage everyone to enjoy sustainable local orchard produce; and
  • have lots of fun!
