Apple Day

Apple Day is a National event created by Common Ground in 1989 to celebrate and raise awareness about the importance of preserving traditional apple varieties, traditional landscapes and the countryside.

Fruitscape assists at Apple Days by providing:

  • Apple identification
  • Providing a display of Northern grown apples
  • Providing expert help with regards to the growing and training of fruit trees
  • Offering advice regarding pests and diseases of fruit

Below are photographs and links of some of the Apple Days that Fruitscape has been involved in.
