The Orchard Project

Tree Planting Day 01/05/21

Our Tree Planting Day has been approved! It will be on May 1st and will need support from as many of us as possible to enable us to get all the trees in the ground.
To accommodate volunteers in a Covid secure manner it needs people to sign up so that access and use of equipment is spread safely across the day.
The link is here, please sign up as soon as possible to get involved:

Please feel free to share this wider to anyone you know who is also interested in coming along to help out.
Looking forward to seeing the Orchard take shape on 1st May!

The Orchard Project – Info Meeting Today

MCC & an organisation called The Orchard Project will be working with the local community to plant 12-15 fruit trees on the Playing Fields to be maintained as a community managed Orchard. They’re also refreshing the Orchard in Kenworthy Woods as a separate project.

They’ll provide training to volunteers on management of the spaces, to include planting, grafting new trees, and pruning. Things are moving very fast on this due to the tree planting season coming to an end shortly and they are looking for interested folks to get involved asap.

There’s a presentation about The Orchard Project work this evening at 7pm, sorry for short notice. Register via link if interested:

If you’d like to learn more about the Parkway Playing Fields project there should be a zoom call later this week or early next tbc – please let me us if you’d like to join that.
