Naturalists and wildlife documentary producers, Nick Gates and Benedict Macdonald, spent many years observing the sights, sounds and symbioses at play in a traditional orchard. The result, Orchard: A Year in England’s Eden, is vital reading for all nature-lovers, and especially orchardists. Delve into this remarkably poetic, insightful prose, and you’ll never see old dead wood, hedgerows or windfall in the same way again!
In this interview, Nick reads a passage from the book and shares his incredibly in-depth knowledge of orchard wildlife with us. You’ll also get a sneak preview of some of the book’s photographs. Sit back, listen and be inspired.
