Would you like to be part of a city centre orchard?

…if so, then it’s worth you chatting with Friends Of Brandon Hill about a planned Brandon Hill Community Orchard and Herb Garden, as the group is looking for those interested in orchards and their produce to be part of this new project…

Friends Of Brandon Hill have secured some initial funding for the project, but are now looking for people to help them to get the orchard up and running. They have missed the planting season (now planned for November), but intend to buy the trees over the next couple of months so that they can mature over the summer.

This is where your help could potentially come in. The group is looking for help to determine which species of fruit trees will do well in the park and whose fruit can be used by all – in addition to needing help with the planting and maintenance of the orchard once this stage is reached.

The first two meetings planned for those interested in helping with the project are on Tuesday 12th April and Tuesday 10th May at 18:30 next to the depot on Brandon Hill.

If you’re keen to get involved, drop the Friends an email on info@friendsofbrandonhill.org, or call Fraser on 0791 901 5774.
