Leed’s community orchards need You!
We’ve been busy celebrating Apple Day, and Leeds community orchard culture, in many of the orchards of Leeds throughout October. From apple juicing and cider making to longest peel competitions and apple bobbing, there has been something for everyone!
Leeds, and the surrounding area, is home to almost 50 community orchards, 7 of which Helping Britain Blossom have proudly helped plant and 1 that we have helped restore to former glory, but many of these orchards need more eager volunteers to help care for them.
Could that be you?
Alan Thornton from The Orchard Project, and our Helping Britain Blossom Leeds project manager, said:
“Leeds has an established and growing community orchard culture, which we want the city to celebrate. Apple Day is a great way to celebrate the joy that orchards bring to communities, be it learning new skills, exercise, people of all ages coming together for a common cause and of course wonderful, healthy fruit.”
So why not get involved, and help Britain blossom!
