Come along and celebrate as we visit our Orchard and growing Food Forest right next door and give the bigger trees some TLC.
Tucked away in a quiet corner of Ambury Farm off Wallace Rd, the orchard has been home to a grove of feijoa trees for many years and continues to be cared for and extended by community volunteers to include a wide range of other fruit trees for all to enjoy.
The March 11 event includes a grafting workshop with Richard Fullerton, one of New Zealand’s leading grafting expert who regularly helps out at Ambury Farm. He’ll cover some of the skills that we learned last time, and some new techniques as well. No homework this time, as we can graft straight from one bit onto another with no refrigeration involved.
Friends of the Farm run regular working bees at the orchard, helping you connect with this wonderful resource.
Wear sturdy footwear and gloves are a good idea.
Hope to see you all there.
