Tree Planting and The Orchard

Tree Planting and The Orchard

Sustainable Clevedon has a tree planting scheme using climate suitable species.

We hope you will help us to do this by planting a tree in your garden, sponsoring a tree to be grown in local open spaces or sponsoring a tree to be grown on local farm land.

To buy or sponsor a tree will cost from £10. We will buy the trees, stakes and guards from a local supplier and plan tree planting sessions in the autumn and winter.

Clevedon Community Orchard. we hold community events such as Wassailing, The Big Lunch and of course the apple harvest. There have been opportunities to go mothing and to learn about brush cutting and scything. We are very grateful for the hard work of the Woodcutters for Wildlife who undertake all the pruning, routine clearing and other maintenance of the orchard. During the first year Dee Holladay did a survey of the flora of the orchard and the results can be seen here http://orchardflora.wordpress.com/. Last year we had a good apple harvest and this has been made into local cider to enjoy at our social events.
