A full day seminar on small orchard restoration and maintenance.
Inspired by the number of heritage fruit trees on the Island that could be brought back into production with proper care, this workshop was developed for farmers and small orchard caretakers to develop holistic orchard management practices for increased production and climate change mitigation.
Includes lecture, lunch, and hands on pruning and grafting techniques.
Instructor: Tim Fryatt – LifeCycles Project
