1 April – Saturday: Blossoms and bees

Join us for a public walk around the orchard to raise awareness about the importance of pollinators as part of National Blossom Watch 2023. We will also have a short beekeeping talk highlighting the importance of pollinators and beekeeping as well as the benefits of honey to our diets.

Join us for our free wellness days in our Medicine Wheel Garden and Community Orchard. We will be restoring our heritage apple orchard and traditional medicine garden as we explore the world of wild medicine and plants throughout the four seasons together.

Our Wellness Days are open to anyone interested in learning about plants and natural remedies, tree and orchard care, how we can deepen our relationship with the natural world and its benefits on our health and wellbeing. Our series of free events will allow you to connect and learn about seasonal herbalism, nature connection and mindfulness in nature, orchard care and food forestry, and each day has been created as a perfect day out to enjoy our sensing relationship with the natural world on our beautiful rewilding 50 acre estate. Lunch and light refreshments are included, bookings are essential.

Places are limited so please only book if you are sure you can come. We will provide a delicious lunch with our small on-site team as a thank you for your efforts.
