Community Orchard – how to get involved

You can get involved in the Community Orchard at the start of 2024…

We’re planning to expand our community orchard over the coming months and have a Wassail Celebration too!

The Orchard is a community initiative – local folk are planting and taking care of the trees. The group is just getting into a routine with meetings, and making new plans for the year. New members are welcome, and you don’t need prior knowledge about trees – it’s a good chance to learn. Please come along to any of the upcoming sessions to see what it’s like and get involved…
