Heritage Fruit Trees

Otautau has its remnant heritage fruit trees from days gone by but it seems that more are finding their way back into the area. There are projects planned to introduce them at the local school as well as the arboretum. This could be inspired in part by the compelling video 'Knights of the Silver Spade'.

Or it could helped along by the grafting workshops given by Robert and Robin Guyton of Riverton. To find out more visit their Open Orchard Project.

Brilliant local talent and a great tale of derring do! The message - save the aging fruit trees before they are lost - is just right for our time. Looking foward to the follow up, Sir Peasegood, Sir Codlin and Adam Pearmain! Curse you medlar!
