Orchard courses for 2022

Horfield Organic Orchard (HOCO), based at our Golden Hill site, is running their Caring for Trees courses again this year.

Courses take place in HOCO’s rich and diverse outdoor learning environment, located in Davies Field on Golden Hill site. They are led by Shannon Smith, a knowledgeable and down-to-earth tutor.

The Orchard Learning Programme is a 9 -month long course designed to deepen the knowledge and sharpen the skills of those involved in the close care of fruit trees and orchards.

Get Growing Fruit Trees is a friendly introduction to the basics of fruit tree care. Four afternoon sessions are spaced over a growing season.
