A com­mu­nity or­chard

Amateur Gardening - - Your Letters -

THIS pho­to­graph was taken in our com­mu­nity or­chard, de­vel­oped five years ago. It has been en­hanced by dona­tions of benches and a pic­nic area for the ben­e­fit of the com­mu­nity. It has now be­come a cen­tre for a num­ber ac­tiv­i­ties and brings to­gether the young and old shar­ing a peace­ful, pretty haven sur­rounded by pro­duc­tive trees, which are a won­der­ful sight in spring and au­tumn.
