WOT2Grow Community Orchard

As we come to end of our first year at the orchard  it is time to reflect on the orchard and what it is all about.

It is YOUR Orchard the whole reason for a group of us coming together to get funding was to enable the local people in the area to establish an orchard. The benefits of the orchard are for all, some people will learn

new skills in looking after plants and trees
how to prune and graft fruit trees
about the benefits of keeping bees and how to do it
how to plant wild flower meadows and strips.

Others will

try fruits they have never tasted
get some exercise working at the orchard
just enjoy the peaceful environment and the beauty of the trees

Children will

benefit from learning about growing fruit, tasting it and understanding why it is good for them.

As a team we are only co-ordinating the activities needed to get the orchard established.  Anyone can be involved as it is your orchard the team are just helping out like many others who have worked at the orchard  but things don't happen without some form of organisation!

We are lucky in having members who can help out but others  support us by paying their membership fee, 25 to join and a small annual fee thereafter, which enables us to pay for the things not covered by the initial grant.

All are welcome whether they are members or not!
