Our Community Orchard is 10 Years Old

On 25th June, to mark 10 years of planting fruit trees to create a dispersed community orchard for the town, Transition Buxton installed signs to mark some of the larger clusters of trees. The fruit is there for anyone to enjoy.

The sign unveiled on 25th June at Cote Heath Park is one of five kindly donated by Buxton Civic Association, and unveiled by Cllr Jean Todd, Central Ward & Executive Councillor for Climate Change, Environment and Community Safety, and Cllr Keith Savage, Cote Heath Ward. Planting started in 2011 and since then over 80 fruit trees, have been planted in public places around the town and at several schools.

They want to thank the Borough Council for their active support regarding suitable locations. However, they are always on the lookout for more places to plant even just a few trees. Orchard trees can be sponsored by individuals for a £25 donation.
