Workshop
Audley End, not far from the city of Cambridge, is the venue for our Trained Fruit in Historic Kitchen Gardens-workshop. Their kitchen garden is over a hectare, with espaliered pears, condons, fan trained plums and figs and apples, – in other words – the perfect venue for our practical workshop in August.

The workshop is now full and it is not possible to apply any longer.
