Royate_map&textWear old clothes. We stop for a vegan lunch about 1.30pm and welcome food brought along to share.

The community orchard operates according to permaculture principles (to the best of our ability) – we learn as we go along so come along and learn with us. No experience is necessary!

For more info, other workshops (pruning, grafting etc), group visits etc please contact Mike Feingold on 07768915423.

What if it rains? We keep working in light rain; during heavy showers we retreat to the greenhouse and roundhouse; if rain is continually heavy we abandon the workday as the slippery slopes of the land makes it unsafe.
