History and management of traditional Orchards

The Countryside Restoration Trust are welcoming Hidden Herefordshire to their Orchards at Awnell’s Farm as a location for a morning looking at all aspects of Traditional Orchards. Traditional Orchards are a significant local wildlife and landscape feature and a recognised national Habitat of Principal Importance. Local orchard enthusiast James Bisset will lead you through a walk and talk on the history and management of Orchards and why this is such an important habitat. You’ll be introduced to recording this Habitat type (helping update the national Traditional Orchard Inventory managed by PTES); and some of the wide and varied biodiversity that Traditional Orchards support. James will also be happy to answer your questions on the establishment and management of orchards!

Please BYO refreshments (a short coffee break will be included!). We are sorry but the orchard is not easily accessible for the more mobility impaired. No dogs please. This event is outside in a Traditional Orchard so please dress accordingly!

Detailed joining instructions will be sent out in early January to those that book on this event.

This event is now fully booked, however we do occasionally have cancellations, if you would like to join the waiting list please complete the form below.
