Poetry at the orchard

My friend Janet asked me what I thought about having a poet-in-residence at the Pear Necessities orchards in Kent. Janet will say more about her experience being a poet at the orchard, herself. I’m going to talk about what it’s been like as a food grower to involve a poet. At Pear Necessities, we grow certified organic pears, apples and plums. We sell the fruit through Growing Communities farmers’ market, and Growing Communities and Local Greens veg box schemes.
