In 2017 we were kindly donated 9 fruit trees by one of our long-term volunteers. These were purchased locally from Cherry Tree Nursery and have been planted up by our car park to create a community orchard.
This creates another source of food for pollinators and wildlife alike and when they mature we will have fruit available.
Recently we added new bench so that visitors can sit and relax in this area, watching the bees and birds as they go about their daily lives.
The list of trees planted can be found below:
Conference pear - Pyrus communis 'Conference'
Shropshire damson - Prunus domestica subsp. insititia
Sweet cherry - Prunus avium 'Stella'
Sunburst cherry - Prunus avium 'Sunburst'
Victoria plum - Prunus domestica
Sunset apple - Malus domestica 'Sunset'
Red pippin apple - Malus domestica 'Fiesta'
