20 Heritage Fruit Tree's Project!

Can you help us? 

We set up our small Eco Friendly, Beyond Organic, No-Dig Market Garden in November 2019, and in Feb 2020 opened for business, we had during this time designated an area of outstanding natural beauty to plant 20 Heritage Fruit Trees for the local community to use and enjoy.

Our hope is the community can come, sit on the bench we have provided (currently refurbishing it) and enjoy the trees, birds, and nature all around on this beautiful plot. And, once the trees are producing, help themselves to the delicious fruits to take home for themselves and their families.

We believe fruit trees should be in abundance here in the UK and be a free source of fresh food to use.

Our plan was to buy all 19 trees ourselves, but COVID 19 hit our little farm hard, after starting and getting out to the first three farmers markets we were on lockdown, and so to date, we just haven't been able to afford to purchase the trees for the community as planned, however, the local WI in Bently have kindly donated the first tree to get us started on our project, and so we had such a wonderful day planting the very first Fruit tree.

So now, the aim is to fundraise for the 19 Heritage Fruit Trees for the community.

Can you help us? 

We would very much appreciate any help, we would also welcome volunteers who would enjoy planting their Heritage Fruit Tree for the community and also we are more than happy to dedicate your gifted Tree to a lost loved one, human or pet with a small plaque in their memory.

Thank you so much
