We are very excited to report that a Community Orchard has been planted in the PARC by the Wotton Community Orchard Group. Matt Adams gave us an update on the Orchard and what is planned for the future.
“The intention of the Community Orchard is to offer people in Wotton and surrounding areas the opportunity to explore and appreciate trees and nature. Fruit trees are a good choice because we can eat the fruit directly from the tree which gives the opportunity to deepen our connection with nature, as well as appreciate their beauty as they grow. This connection can be strengthened over time by activities that celebrate the seasons: enjoying the blossom in spring; the shade in summer; harvesting, eating and juicing in the autumn; and pruning and wassailing in the winter.”
The group is open to anyone in the Wotton and surrounding areas. It is free of charge. To join please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with contact details.
