Event Details

We are continuing to see a renewed interest in the revival of the traditional Irish Orchard and most people have fond memories of orchards from their childhood. This course will cover choice of site, layout of orchard, choosing rootstocks, soil preparation, drainage, maintenance, health and disease, and choosing varieties. Soil health and improvement and pruning techniques will also be covered. Whether you are a farmer, a small-holder, or an apple enthusiast, this workshop will provide you with a perfect grounding. Highly recommended for beginners.

Our Big workshop weekend offers a range of full-day courses to choose from. You can take a single course or two courses over the weekend. Our courses always get positive feedback from participants and you will benefit from on hand expert tutors with years of experience in their field. The weekend format also offers you the opportunity to meet like-minded people and to spend some time in our gardens, orchards and woodlands in beautiful East Clare.
