Community Orchard

Thanks to a donation from a local building firm the Trust has been able to purchase 10 new fruit trees for the community orchard. These are traditional Kentish varieties of fruit trees grow by Brogdale.
As part of this project the existing trees, as well as all the new trees, will be getting substantial wire cages which will provide much better protection from the thriving rabbit population, marauding dogs and mowing machines.
