Apples and Orchards

Apples and Orchards

For several years I’ve been storying orchards. Bringing storytelling, folklore, story making and crafts to orchard events around the seasonal year. On Apple days, Blossom days, Work days and Wassails.

I am pleased to be working with the Growing Orchard Communities in South Devon Project  as artist, project support and steering group member.  

Working with the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty  I worked with a village around their orchard year, leading a 7 week story making project with a primary school in their community orchard that included song writing and drama, made a handmade Apple Book with their new story, poems, pictures and apple sayings which led to a performance on Apple Day.

Isabella has discovered plenty of orchard stories on her travels with the story bicycle.
