Tuesday 16th March, 7pm - 830pm

Ideas on how to create and develop a community orchard.
You can find out about seasonal orchard care, designs, mapping and our special guest speakers who will inspire you into how to make your greenspace into a fruitful community hub.
Guest speaker and former Orchard Project colleague, Clem Sandison, will share her thoughts and advice on turning your community orchard into a Food Forest. Over many years Clem and the community group attached to Alexandra Park in Glasgow have sought to have so much more than a mono-culture of fruit trees. Creating diverse habitats for diverse communities means that their orchard group have a deeper conversation and tastier fruit bowl or even dinner table for which to bring their community together.
Chris Macefield from The Orchard Project in Edinburgh, will help guide you through a year-long programme of orchard activities, to inspire you in creating your own orchard management plan.
And Dan Hasler, the Manchester based Project Manager, will demonstrate our custom-made Orchard Design Kit, both our lovely wooden box of delights and also how to utilise the power of the Google Earth Desktop app to either design a new orchard or catalogue your existing fruit tree stock so that a three dimensional digital record is created.
