Tree Planting on Easter Saturday 3 April 2010

The St Andrews Orchard Group and volunteers have planted the first thirty trees to establish a branch of the Commonwealth Orchard in St Andrews. The Commonwealth Orchard is inspired by the 2014 Games coming to Scotland and builds on the successful track record of the Children's Orchard. The Commonwealth Orchard is being planted across Scotland and beyond, consisting of lots of small plantings, making a greater whole. Their vision is that children and families can all grow fruit near to where they live. Businesses, landowners, charities, local authorities, schools and communities can all create a fruitful Scotland. The first batch of trees were planted in Stanks Park, behind Macs papershop on Lamond Drive and these trees were donated by Fife Council, Fife Coastal & Countryside Trust and private donations. The St Andrews Orchard Group hopes to plant more trees in the Autumn and if you would like to help please contact Henry Paul
