The above is an exert of the brilliant blog written by Alison Fure. You can read the full article, including some of the fascinating history of certain fruit plants at: http://alisonfure.blogspot.com/2018/12/green-lane-community-orchard-planting.html
We are so grateful for the 20+ volunteers that braved the very cold and wet conditions to join us and Lewis from The Orchard Project to plant this new community orchard; we had residents from both New Malden and Berrylands, as well as further afield, some of the local scouts & cubs from 7th New Malden Scout Group, local Berrylands Councillor John Sweeney as well as other keen regular volunteers from Friends of Berrylands Nature Reserve.
If you want to get involved, find out more about this community orchard or volunteer for other conservation events then contact us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or via our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages.
Thanks again to the wonderful Alison Fure for leading the whole process for this new orchard and for allowing us to share her blog article.
