The natural world project invited all to a family event, an age-old English tradition to "wake" the fruit trees from their winter sleep.
Wild Time attended and spoke with many people and also enjoyed the music and dance performances at the Orchard.
The velvet orchard is situated at the Witton lakes. Regular listeners may remember Linda Hines from the witton lakes being on Wild Time as a studio guest in 2011.
On air date for the footage recorded at the orchard to be confirmed.
