If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr. Clarke Brunt.

A talk on orchards (particularly ‘community’ orchards). Admission free. More details here. Perhaps visit Milton Country Park’s own orchard while there.

The talk will be preceded by the brief AGM of the Friends of Milton Country Park, and followed by refreshments (provided by the committee).

The title of this talk is taken from an old Welsh proverb, which sums up the spirit that inspires the planting of any orchard, particularly community orchards. Joanna will be explaining the background to her own community orchard project at Trumpiongton, taking us through the stages of its creation, planting and maintenance. She will be drawing on examples from orchards old and new to celebrate the emotional and cultural bond that we have with apples and orchards. The talk will open out into a discussion on how to care for newly planted and established trees in our own gardens and in community sites.

There is a car-parking charge of £2 at the Park.

This talk is part of the Friends of Milton Country Park series.
