Every Friday morning families with pre-school children come and grow food at our community allotment. Children from 2-5 years old plant seeds then harvest crops which we then cook and eat at the allotment. Most do not have any outside space at home. Having fruit tree's would add a new, exciting dimension to this well attended, award winning project.
Thank you to all our funders and the support team at Crowdfunder -we have raised our £130 target for ten fruit trees next year.
Just one pack will provide us with five fruit trees including two apples, one pear, one plum and one quince. All trees are kindly donated by Otter Farm. The fruit trees are two years old and will fruit next year.
Our campaign is supported by Abel and Cole, The Woodland Trust and River Cottage, who are both kindly donating some amazing rewards.
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall said: “I find the idea that the next generation could be growing more fruit, eating more fruit and cooking their fruit in a much more creative way incredibly exciting. I want to do what I can to make that happen.”
All the trees are provided by Otter Farm.
