VACANCY: Treasurer at Brogdale, Faversham

Brogdale Collections in Kent was founded as a Charity in April 2008 to provide the public with access to and information about the National Fruit Collection at Brogdale Farm. One of the most comprehensive and largest collections of temperate fruit varieties in the world.

The National Fruit Collection is funded by Defra as part of international programmes for conserving genetic diversity for the future. It is curated by the University of Reading, and the day-to-day management is sub-contracted. Funding is only for the maintenance and research of the Collection on a scientific basis. Hence without Brogdale Collections the Collection would be on a closed site with no public access or engagement.

We engage with the public through activities including Festivals and events, guided tours, education visits, courses, and fruit sales.

Our key areas of focus are education, horticulture, the environment, diet and health.
