Plant A Tree, Eat The Fruit

This winter the gardening team have budget to help whoever is interested in planting a fruit tree on the estate. (apple, plums, cherries!)

If you have a suitable space near you and you’d like to look after a tree please let us know.

We can also plant fruit bushes. We were thinking about raspberries or blackberries, but please do make suggestions, if you have a favourite type of fruit.

We can provide support by:

  • getting approval from the housing Association
  • buying the tree for you
  • helping you planting it
  • give you support for maintaining it

The space should be in a sunny and accessible spot.

If you can get your neighbours involved even better, you could grow a mini orchard!

Please get in touch with us to register your interest, we have few spots available over the next couple of months.

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
