Cherry Grove Planting Day

On Sunday 14th February, the Transition Town Wellington successfully planted 12 morello cherry trees at the edge of the 2nd rugby pitch, with 8 new people coming to help plant them too! By 2017 they will be producing sour cherries to use in cherry pies and jam, and we will encourage local people to come and harvest them, with recipes showing how to cook them on our website They will also have beautiful blossom in the spring which you should be able see from the sports centre steps in the years to come.

If you would like to join in with more tree planting this week, we will be meeting at 10.30am on Sunday 21st February, at the community woodland, which is accessed from behind the sports centre, or from the 2nd rugby pitch. There we will be planting 8 different types of fruit for people to enjoy the harvest from in the future. Just bring wellies, maybe gardening gloves if you have them, and young children must be accompanied by an adult.
