Caring for an orchard is a continuous and rewarding process. Throughout the year there are jobs to be done to ensure the trees are thriving and ready to produce a bumper crop. For first time orchardists, jobs such as pruning, thinning and staking can seem daunting. We want you to have the confidence to care for your trees and have fun doing it. We think a big part of the pleasure of tending an orchard is the chance to observe, experiment and create; the trees are very forgiving!
The best way to learn a new skill is from someone who has practical experience, and the ability to share their knowledge. This is where our Orchard Mentors come in. Orchard Mentors are our trained up, community volunteers. Many of them have completed our Certificate in Community Orcharding.
