findciderTraditional orchards have become an extremely rare habitat - Devon has lost 90% since the 1950s. Our aim is to halt this decline; to protect the unique biodiversity that exists within them and prevent the loss of rare apple varieties. Photographer @alexboard1 came to help with some restorative pruning and brought his camera along #findandfoster #orchardrescue #traditionalorchard #restorativepruning #rare #biodiversity #englishheritage #naturalengland #devon #devoncider #rarehabitat #sustainablefood #sustainablefarming #sustainableagriculture #finecider
- anna__aliThere's a lovely big orchard that I used to scrump from back when it was neglected that is now being cared for beautifully, at Dainton near Ipplepen - right at the very end of the village. Don't know if it's of interest - you might find some interesting varieties maybe.
- findciderThanks @anna_ali that's brilliant it's being well cared for now, I'll try & visit. Getting very jealous of your snowboarding posts!
- ali_boardBeautiful picture :) but I may be a little biased!
