Midsummer Orchard Open Day - Saturday 17 June - 1-5pm

posted 13 Jun 2017, 05:41 by Horfield Orchard

Enjoy an afternoon exploring Bristol’s pioneering community orchard.

Come and see our newly planted Home Orchard Plot project – a mini orchard with a 10 x 4 metre footprint.  Be inspired to grow productive and delicious fruit on your allotment or garden.

See our Orchard Roots Bristol exhibition for stories of local and heritage apples.  Find out how a small community group transformed a piece of marginal and neglected land into a beautiful, fruitful urban oasis.

·      The relaxed nature of this event gives us time to answer your fruit growing questions.

·      Homemade cakes, refreshments, produce and plants for sale.

·      Compost loo on site.

·      Join the orchard in June and share in this year’s harvest!

This day is part of a Trail of Two Orchards, co-organised with

Metford Road Community Orchard, which is open 12-5pm.  Entrance next to 37 Metford Road, BS6 7LA.

Double your orchard pleasure on June 17 and visit this secret, organic orchard planted on permaculture principles. 

It’s on a steep slope, sturdy shoes advised.  Enjoy thriving wildlife, guided tours, and refreshments. Produce and plants for sale. Compost loo on site.
