Fig.1. Liquid Inspiration – I visit Middle Farm for the cider
I’ve used the history of orchards in Sussex to offer a model for how higher education might change and adapt – grubbing out the old and offering something ‘customers’ want is a good message. Location too, this on the A25 – universities today needing to be on the Internet Super Highway.
I’ve used the metaphor of orchards in e-learning too – the nurturing of the crop, the varieties grown and how these are promoted and sold.

Fig.3. Middle Farm sells a bewildering number of varieties.
Side-R takes you to a somewhat bizarre website that reveals itself to be odder still when you Google translate from the Japanese.
