The community orchard – it’s in!

Posted 24 Nov 2010 in Uncategorized

On Saturday 20 November, about 60 people congregated on Cheena Meadow, Chalfont St Peter, to plant our first community orchard. Here is a brief account of how it developed.

The day before, shovelling manure for planting the trees. Lovely!

The day dawns on Cheena meadow…..
