We are a group of volunteers from in and around Bishop's Stortford who want to create, develop and look after community orchards in the local area.
Join us to look after our first orchard in Northern Parkland and to help us plan for the new site at Jenkins Lane.
Volunteer to prepare for future planting or join us in the fresh open air to care for the orchard and get the land ready, dig holes and plant more trees.
On the 18th May we visited the new Jenkins Lane site to make plans to clear the site and get the fencing up.
In April we signed a lease with Bishop’s Stortford Town Council to develop a community orchard at Jenkins Lane. The area is approximately 0.3 hectares and we will be able to plant at least 100 trees.
The Town Council has also awarded us Major Capital Grant funding to kick start the development of the Community Orchard.
