As the EU-funded Horticulture Wales project for 2022-2023, driven by Wrexham Glyndwr University, approaches its conclusion, Horticulture Wales expresses gratitude for the invaluable contributions and active engagement made by its cluster members.

Throughout the project, Horticulture Wales actively participated in various high-profile networking events, including the Caerwys Show, Royal Welsh Agricultural Show, Anglesey Show, Go Green and Wellbeing weeks, Allotment Forums, and other online events. Visits from cluster members, including Tech Tyfu/Mentor Mon, Flintshare, Angel Feathers, Snowdon Valley Farm, AMRC, Dr. Helen Monk, lecturer David Sprake, and Carolyn Thomas of the Senedd, were warmly welcomed.

Horticulture Wales takes pride in its collaboration with Wales Heritage Orchard Ltd, which supports the preservation of heritage fruit trees in the Wales Heritage Orchard cluster. The project organized a range of events, such as apple pressing sessions in schools and donations of heritage fruit trees to organizations in Wales.

Meetings were held both online and at Aberystwyth University, facilitating valuable collaborations with esteemed organizations like the Marcher Apple Network, National Botanic Garden of Wales, Welsh Perry & Cider Society, and more. These meetings served as vital platforms for knowledge sharing and collective action towards the preservation of heritage fruit trees in Wales.
