Jonathan and Carol Pearce: "We bought an orchard"
Our speakers for October will need no introduction. We have our own, now retired, GP Jonathan and has wife Carol to tell us about what keeps them busy in retirement. A chance encounter with an estate agent led Carol to fulfill an ambition to own a little land of her own. The snag was the land on offer was an old orchard! So, Carol and Jonathan embarked on a learning curve which has happily filled their retirement hours. They tell the story of how they learned to look after their orchard and to harvest and make useful produce from it.
