Summer Orchard Day – Glasgow
Event Date: 26 Jul 2017
Come and learn about the North Kelvin Meadow Orchard and how to care for the trees for maximum fruitfulness and health. Summer pruning, mulching, feeding and Q&A. Picnic and fun activities for kids, including a giant fruit relay complete with special orchard hats. Here’s your chance to get involved with an orchard that, at 5 years old, is just coming into its own. Lunch and refreshments provided – but feel free to bring something to share.
The orchard maintenance will be led by Tom Watson from Leith Community Croft, where he manages a forest garden orchard and social enterprise fruit tree nursery. Leith Community Croft (Edinburgh) is a dynamic community garden project with 200 members, a monthly farmers market, children’s education programme and much more.
