    Come to Pettys Orchard in Templestowe to sample the seasonal flavours of the Heritage Apple Collection at an Apple Tasting afternoon at 3 PM.

      Approximately 15 varieties available for tasting. These will be late-season apples - really starting to develop that full flavour of old-fashioned apples! Orchard tour included. Event runs for approx. 2 hours. Further details emailled after registration and payment.

    Come and try, perhaps for the first time, some of over two hundred varieties grown in the Heritage Apple Collection at Pettys Orchard

    All funds received go toward the maintenance and expansion of the collection.

    • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
    • Pettys Orchard

    Apples will be nearly gone but there will still be some to pick and taste. We also plan to burn some of our pile of prunings. General maintenance.

    We always discuss plans for the orchard - what and when to plant, and how we can improve protection and condition of our trees - & we encourage new input.

    Wednesday working bees are normally the first and third Wednesdays. Please register so you receive an email the Monday before - occasionally we cancel if there is little to do or the weather is lousy. Cancelled on days of total fire-ban in the Central District.

    This is a free event. You do not need to book and no experience is necessary, but we do ask that you email fsurr@tpg.com.au to let us know you are coming.

    Coffee, tea and refreshments are provided.

    Wear sturdy boots and clothing, as well as a hat and sunscreen as we are often examining trees.
