Harvest Fair at Branscombe

This weekend, the Medicinal Forest Garden Trust has a stall at the Branscombe Harvest Fair, 12-4 on Saturday 17th September 2016. We will have our plant quiz, details of herbal medicine education and practitioners, Holt Wood Herbs products for body and skin care (some free samples). Last year was a great day out so visit us in the marquee on the playing field adjacent to Branoc Hall in Branscombe village near the Devon coast.

We have been working hard to create our orchard ride, clearing sufficient space for several rows of trees. Already we have some apple, plum, sea buckthorn, sweet chestnut and walnut trees. There will soon be more space for elderberry and hazel nut trees.
