COMMUNITY ORCHARD SUCCESSFULLY PLANTED

COMMUNITY ORCHARD SUCCESSFULLY PLANTED

Thanks to muscle power and enthusiasm from well over 100 villagers, the Community Orchard has now been planted. If you would like to see a time-lapse of the weekend action, check out this YouTube video by Alex Prain: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qL_19DLaTtw&feature=share

The first tree was ceremoniously planted on Saturday by 95-year old Ron Wood as the village's oldest resident and 10-year old Thomas Colam, representing the generation who will take responsibility for the trees as they mature. Paul Chilton gave practical instructions to volunteer planters as they did battle with spades in the sticky mud.

Our picture shows Paul Chilton and Alison Bloomfield both the prime movers behind the orchard project. To see more, and to keep up with community orchards news, visit http://www.brightwellorchards.blogspot.co.uk << Go Back
