Community orchard update

Local residents are continuing to plant trees as part of the community orchard site and an area on the farm site has been cleared for some cordon planted orchard trees to go in before the spring. The orchard trees planted in Florence park in the summer, despite being planted at a tricky time weather wise are looking strong and healthy – thanks to the team of volunteers and support from the Oxford City Parks department who watered them during the warm dry summer months (remember them?!).Those involved with the Orchard project will be attending the second orchard related training event this Saturday looking at pruning. And will be visiting many of the newly planted trees local to the farm site to get them in great shape for the coming growing season.
