PRERA and Open Orchard are working together to plant more fruit trees on Palace Road Estate. Do come and join in with the planting. See the poster below for further details.
In time, the trees will provide residents with a source of healthy, local, fresh produce. We’ll be planting a range of varieties of apple, many of which you’re unlikely to find in local supermarkets.
If you’re not able to make it to this planting event but you’d like to help look after the new trees, do get in touch (email firstname.lastname@example.org). The trees are going to need plenty of water through the spring and summer. In due course they will also need some pruning. Training can be arranged.
Would you be interested in getting involved in other food growing and gardening projects on the estate? If so, do get in touch (email email@example.com). As a community organisation, PRERA can apply for funding and other resources for such projects.
