Prospect Green - New Community Orchard
10 fruit trees are planned to be planted and 4 mini meadow areas created on Prospect Green to give back to nature and enhance a centrally located and currently underused public greenspace. Conveniently located next to the Greengage community garden this site can be enjoyed by the public and fruit harvested for the community. Volunteers will help to maintain the trees and meadows and carry out surveys, with the Town Council continuing with regular mowing of the short sections.
With special thanks to Simon and colleagues at Holme for Gardens, for providing inspiration, advice and for supplying the trees at a reduced price for this community project.
