WOT2Grow Your Community Orchard

If you haven't visited the orchard recently do go down and see how good it looks and be amazed at what has been achieved by your community. There is lots of growth and plenty of fruit set so hopefully we will have an even better harvest than last year.

Our work with the Kineton Scout Group to make a sensory garden has progressed to the point where we have a planted garden! We laid the weed suppressant material and the gravel path and then came together to plant it. The small plants will soon fill out and the annuals will seed for next year. Charlecote Garden Store supplied a large number of great plants and we had donations including some from B&Q.

We have received planning permission to install a waterless toilet on site which will be installed in June, a really fun design which will fit in a rural environment, and a bonus for everyone who comes to the orchard!

Our next event is a repeat of the “Wellies and Watering Cans” session for children and their parents. A great success last year so come along on July 4th from 3:00pm to 5:00pm for watering, measuring against a tree and a picnic of jam/honey sandwiches, flapjacks, cakes and squash! Tea and coffee for parents will be available!

On Sunday Sept 1st from 2:00pm we will be having a “Cream Teas “ Open day at the orchard. Come and enjoy an afternoon tea, see the varieties of fruit we are growing and enjoy the beauty of the orchard.

Come and join us in all these great activities!!!
