The Campden Society joined the Gloucestershire Orchard Trust this year https://glosorchards.org/home/. In the summer GOT Orchard expert and co-chair Martin Hayes visited to provide us with advice and share his extensive knowledge about fruit trees and orchards. Martin returned in September to lead a pruning workshop, so we have the skills to keep our young trees in good form over the coming years.
Steve Oram from Ptes gave us an immense amount of help and support, in our quest to turn Wolds End Orchard into a Community Orchard and Nature Reserve.
His knowledge and enthusiasm gave us the impetus to carry on with this project and the encouragement to believe all the hard work would be worthwhile. https://www.facebook.com/ptes.org
