DATE BEGAN: 1st tree planted in February 2008
SPONSOR: Individuals from the community
PURPOSE: To generate an orchard where:-
Blossom can be appreciated
The fruits can be eaten or taken away for cooking
Insects can be investigated
A safe area which disabled people can access and where it is
possible to work alongside able bodied people. They will also be
sheltered by the trees.
WORKERS: Service users and volunteers
WHO BENEFITS: Everyone
WHO CANNOT ACCESS: N/A
RISKS: After group assessment, the orchard is graded low risk for pleasure and working.
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: The orchard is now well established and by Summer 2013 the branches should be long enough to make sheltered arches for the more profoundly disabled to lay under.
