IMG 4245 now ready to take bookings for educational visits. The Charity has put all required Covid-compliant measures in place to ensure that school groups are able to visit.

Debi Adams, Education Officer at Brogdale says: “This is a wonderful time of year for children to visit our orchards. With thousands of different trees to study – they can enjoy plenty of practical demonstrations and interactive opportunities. Also, for the first time this year, children will be able to pick their own heritage cherries, which we’re sure will prove very popular.”

Brogdale Collections works with schools, education institutions and youth groups. Their orchard site of over 150 acres includes an interactive weather station, world music garden, wildlife garden, farmland and nature areas. Visiting children can discover where their food comes from whilst exploring nature, insects, wildlife, food nutrition and the role of weather in growing. Brogdale may also be able to provide funding for transport for visiting schools.
