Sandown Allotments Orchard Group and the Green Hive have organised pruning and grafting workshops run by local Gardeners Guild members Robert Cunningham and Des Scholes.

Robert and Des have also travelled further afield in Scotland to demonstrate the skills practised in Nairn and talk about what has been achieved here and the hopes of local enthusiasts for the future in this area. They are available for bespoke training workshops in February and March of each year for pruning and grafting skills and with others can facilitate visits to the Sandown orchards and elsewhere in Nairn.

Visits can be arranged to see the Sandown orchard and its many varieties at different times of the year.
