On 3rd October 2015 Dundee Urban Orchard will welcome the Orchard

Collective Scotland to Dundee. The Orchard Gathering will focus on the

theme of Orchard Cities and the role that the creative arts can play

in generating and sustaining energy for a growing orchard movement.

Examples of creative orchard projects from across the UK will be

highlighted. The day will include lively presentations, creative

workshops and plenty of time to discuss next steps for the Orchard

Collective Scotland.

The Gathering includes tea/coffee and lunch. For those able to stay

on, there will be an orchard themed evening meal and live

entertainment from 18.00 – 21.30.

Dates for the Orchard Gathering have been chosen to complement Tay

Landscape Partnership’s Fruit Festival events and encourage synergy

across urban and rural environments. TLP events include an apple

harvest at Elcho Castle Orchard on the 4th October, a picking and

juicing skills sharing workshop in Errol on the 7th October, and a

Fruit Festival in Bell Wood Park, Perth on the 10th October.
