Get Growing Fruit Trees Course at Horfield Organic Community Orchard

Horfield Organic Community Orchard

Get Growing Fruit Trees is a friendly introduction to the basics of fruit tree care. Four morning sessions are spaced over a growing season (March, May, July, September).

Participants learn to plan, how to manage problems using nature-friendly methods, when to perk up the soil, and how to make the most of the harvest. Pruning for fruitfulness, an ongoing task, is a key activity at each session. Learning is hands-on, and the effects of choices and actions are observed as the seasons change. No previous experience needed.

Course dates: Saturdays – 11 March, 13 May, 8 July, 9 September, 10.30am-1pm.

Course fees: £130; £120 (member of AOG or H&DAA); £95 (HOCO Friend member); £80 (HOCO Harvest-share member)
Deadline for applications: Sunday 5 March
