Community orchard

On Monday some brave souls ventured out to help plant our community orchard at the compound on Stert Drove.

In the drizzling rain and ankle deep mud we planted 24 apple trees, all native varieties from the area: Ashmeads Kernel (dessert), Tom Putt (dessert/cider/cooker), Dabinett (cider), Kingston Black (cider), Dunkertons Late Sweet (cider), Old Somerset Russet (dessert).

Thanks to Alys and Paul of WWT for inviting us along.
