These quarterly sessions are a great opportunity to learn about maintaining the fruit trees in preparation for the coming season. Drop-in to find out about David Thorpe’s Orchard and how to get involved. All equipment provided.
The Orchard can be found on Whitchurch Green behind Asda on Oatlands Avenue/near Bamfield (BS14 0AX).
The event is part of a lively programme of public art projects, talks, workshops and trips that take as a starting point ideas evoked by the Whitchurch and Hengrove Community Orchard.

Future Perfect is an ambitious public art programme for Hengrove in south Bristol, commissioned by Bristol City Council and curated by Theresa Bergne (Field Art Projects) and Jes Fernie. The programme consists of three commissions by international artists Martino Gamper, Nils Norman and David Thorpe. All three artists have had extensive, fruitful conversations with local people, groups and schools in Hengrove throughout the process of developing their work.
