Bringing the orchard community together across Forth Valley
We are delighted to announce the dates for the ‘Go Fruit & Nuts!’ 2013 event, the annual celebration of Forth Valley’s orchards and fruit trees.
Please make a space in your diary from Monday, 16 to Sunday 22 September 2013, when we will be running an fun-filled and educational programme of orchard-focused activities for the family at Callendar House in Falkirk.
This is the first time that we will have held the event over a week and a weekend, and are very excited about working with Falkirk Community Trust again.
More details about the programme will be released soon, so please visit this web page for updates, and look for us on Twitter @ForthEnviroLink hashtag #FVOrchardsWeek, or on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/Forth-Environment-Link/135497239854799.
‘Go Fruit & Nuts!’ for Orchards at the Forth Valley Orchards’ Weekend 2012
Forth Environment Link teamed up with Falkirk Community Trust, the Forth Valley Orchards’ Group, and Forth Valley Zero Waste Volunteers to hold a programme of fun-filled and free activities to celebrate the forthcoming Forth Valley Orchards' Weekend on 6 & 7 October.
The weekend event, ‘Go Fruit and Nuts!’, took place on Saturday and Sunday, 6 and 7 October 2012 at Callendar House, Callendar Park, Falkirk, FK1 1YR.
The event, part-funded by Falkirk Environment Trust, contributes to the Forth Valley Orchards’ Initiative, co-ordinated by Forth Environment Link, and funded by the Central Scotland Green Network Development Fund 2012.
As part of the weekend celebrations, communities and landowners across Forth Valley were also being urged to get involved in creating or managing orchards and holding celebrations in their own communities over the weekend. A free Scottish variety apple tree was offered to anyone who registers to be a part of the celebration.
