Come on our brilliant, new, orcharding course and learn everything you need to know about managing community orchards. You will benefit from our team of experienced orchardists and the course starts in May 2018.
We will teach on 12 Fridays over 10 months, giving you a wonderful opportunity to learn a wide range of seasonally appropriate skills. In addition you can attend practical, reinforcement days.
The course is reasonably priced and there are options for paying less if you are 16-24 or able to volunteer for us.
