Volunteers at Farsley Community Orchard.

Community orchard volunteers in Farsley have organised a training workshop to learn how to make new fruit trees using a technique called “grafting”.

Local experts from the Fruit Works Co-operative will teach why fruit trees are propagated and the classic “whip and tongue” technique. 

Everyone will take two new apple trees home from the event, at St John’s Church Hall in Farsley on Saturday, 19 March (2-4pm).

There is a sliding scale of three ticket options to make the workshop more accessible to those on low incomes. Tickets are available here

Farsley Community Orchard, which is near Farsley Cricket Club, was established in 2016. The orchard is run by a group of like-minded volunteers who have a shared love for Farsley, the environment, and growing fruit.

New volunteers are always welcome. Contact farsleyorchard@gmail.com for more information.
