A ‘Know your Orchard Roots Bristol' event in the orchard on 8 June was attended by over 100 people of all ages.  The group set up an outdoor photographic and recording area for the occasion, gave tours of the orchard, and answered many fruit-growing questions.  We gathered some great stories from people with personal and family connections to market gardens near Bristol’s 'Blue Finger', local allotments, and Long Ashton Research Station (active in studying and improving commercial cider production, fruit growing, and preservation).  Here's some photos from the day - Orchard Roots Bristol Event June 2013.
