By Jess Bush

Fancy learning how to prune fruit trees? Volunteers from Western Flatts Cliff Park Community Orchard have teamed up with Fruit Works to bring you a pay as you feel winter fruit tree pruning course.

Attendees will learn the theory and practice of winter fruit tree pruning, and participants will each receive a copy of Chloe Ward’s pruning guide “for real people with imperfect trees”.

It’s a suggested donation of £20 and the event will take place on Sunday, 4 December 2022 from 10am-12pm at Western Flatts Cliff Park in The Orchard, which used to be the second bowling green.

Tickets can be bought here.

Fruit Works is a social enterprise helping communities in Leeds and Bradford to plant and maintain fruit trees. Its mission is to empower people to grow their own fruit and build resilient local food systems.

Meanwhile, a new autumn gardening group is meeting every Saturday morning to improve the park.

Volunteers meet from 10am to Midday starting and have been working across both the Rose Garden and the Community Orchard to help prepare for a great display next spring.
