Community Orchards Handbook by Angela King & Sue Clifford of Common Ground - 99033

This book is essential reading for any group thinking of setting up a community orchard and indeed has a wealth of useful information for any enthusiast keen to revive and maintain Britain's orchard tradition.

Drawing on twenty years of championing orchards and the experience of many people who have created community orchards, the handbook offers philosophy and practical advice to those inspired to become Community Orchardists.

Mark Cocker, from The Guardian, writes, "On almost every page its authors proclaim that cultural depth depends on ecological diversity. The more initmate and complex our relationship with nature, the more fruitful the outcome for both parties.... superb".
