Well we thought, if we can’t find a space to plant an orchard for the community then we will put fruit trees into other peoples land. In this project we will be liaising with the Growing spaces project to fnd locations where we can plant fruit trees.
Another aspect of this is we will be asking for people to register to have trees in their gardens or for companies to have them planted in their grounds. If we cannot have an actual orchard then we can still have a virtual one distributed across the town.
We will also train custodians to look after the trees by running pruning and grafting workshops for volunteers.
