We are working on a lovely orchard for Ridge Estate, inspired by Fairfield Community Orchard.
We intend to:
* provide a fruit for free resource for residents
* increase community cohesion by providing a meeting point,
food resource, community events and group to nurture the orchard
* enhance biodiversity by creating more wildlife habitat
We have been consulting with our neighbours on the estate and the results of our survey show that there is a great deal of support for the orchard, with lots of residents saying they would like to get involved and many who would like to dedicate a tree to someone. We aim to plant the orchard in a way that accomodates the way everyone on the estate uses this bit of land.
