Unlike this blog… A long slow winter of illness, unfortunately, put paid to any exciting plans on my part so I was keeping out of things. However, the orchard has been quite happily growing and budding without me, and this seems a good time to remind everyone what we are all about.
Trumpington Community Orchard is free access. You can pop in to this lovely green space whenever you need to breathe, for ten minutes or for an hour. Dogs can be secured outside – assistance dogs are allowed in.
If you want to know more about growing apple trees, just ask us on our Facebook page. We can offer talks, grafting workshops, art sessions – just drop us an enquiry and we will take it from there.
I need more pictures – anyone with pictures of the orchard, please email them to us. In the meantime, here are a couple I took nearby, first of some spring flowers, and two of a bumble bee finding a daffodil that fitted her just right!
