Mad about orchards?

Three Counties Orchard champion project

For the past year seventeen enthusiastic volunteers from across the Three Counties (Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire) have been enjoying an Orchard Champions course. In return for five days free training they have been helping us to promote traditional orchards and local varieties.

They have been such great ambassadors for traditional orchards that we are just about to start a second course and are now looking for applications from people who are similarly mad about orchards! We can offer training from some of the best orchard specialists in the Three Counties, opportunities to enjoy and work in some amazing orchards and support from both TCTOP and our partners Garden Organic to help 'spread the word' about orchards.

The closing date for applications is 24th February and our introductory weekend will be on 18th/19th of March. If you're interested please get in touch with Karen Humphries on 01684 560616 or khumphries@worcestershire.gov.uk and she, or one of our current orchard champions, will tell you more.
