The project was unanimously given the go ahead at the Town Council meeting last night!
Hard to believe it but we now have a 2.5 acre site to put our plans into practice.
Something I've wanted to do for years is finally going to happen.

One Happy Rob

To get the ball rolling we are going to run a 'sponser a tree' campaign. By making a donation people can get a plaque bearing their name next to a tree. The tree will be planted in the Orchard section of the site where people can pick them for free for years to come.

Good luck with it. A community orchard is a great idea. The schools could get involved and incorporate so much into the syllabus, and the brownies, scouts etc could get involved too. We teach lots of courses on pruning, planting, juicing etc - so you have loads of people who will want to come and learn.
