A series of online webinars introduce each topic. Each webinar is free to attend and involves a range of expert speakers from across the consortium. Hands-on workshops will follow in the UK, Sweden, Germany and project leaders Norway. The first UK-based workshop focuses on trained fruit and the UK team are keen to find a suitable location for the workshop. If you have or know of a garden with trained fruit, ideally a range of fruit types and ages, and would be willing to let a team of around 15 horticulturists loose on them for a couple of days in early September 2022, we would like to hear from you! The fruit need not be perfect – in fact, neglected forms would be very welcome.
