Ever driven around the South West, seen a plot of under-utilised land and thought, Hmm - could get a few trees in there! Well, Dr Andrew Ormerod is hosting a conference at the Eden Project on just that subject on Friday 7th March, 10am-4:30pm
A wide range of topics will be covered during the day by a number of different speakers, but the main focus of the event is land use and growing and market opportunities for fruit in the South West and Cornwall.
"The event is of interest to growers and potential growers of fruit in Cornwall and other parts of the South West, users of fruit – retailers, caterers and manufacturers and policy makers," says Andrew
