The Apricot Team
We have a small team that we call upon to carry out projects and related activities such as catering or putting in gardens for the home, organisations or schools. We also design sustainable and edible gardens large or small scale so you too can enjoy your own food, wildlife and feel good !
The snowy winter has made for some incredible scenes and sounds at the Apricot Centre and farm in 2009/2010. Walk with us through the farm in this youtube video
The pictures here show the garden pre-design, and then during the implementation of the Permaculture design.
The centre is run by Mark and Marina O'Connell
