This amazing event is The People’s Orchard’s final festival. The three year environmental enhancement project for St Dogmaels began in 2016, with the aim to create a series of bio-diverse ecosystems throughout the area to encourage a pollinator friendly environment. There has been an extensive planting programme of fruit trees and wild flower meadows which has passed on a broad range of skills in the community.
