Fruit Trees for Communities

Transition Town Reading have been grafting and growing around 100 fruit trees which are now saplings, ready to find permanent homes in the community.

The trees are free to a good home, that can commit to tending, watering, keeping an eye on the trees and eventually making use of the apples. This could be a community orchard of 15-30 trees or a small piece of land for 2-5 trees within the grounds of a school, faith building, community centre or business.

The trees need to be planted as soon as possible, but no later than the end of March. If you think you have a plot of land that may be suitable and you have permission to plant on, please contact Transition Town Reading at communications@transitionreading.org.uk, let them know where the land is / what organisation you are from and how many trees you think you could adopt.

Transition Town Reading volunteers can help with the planting and can provide expertise on how to look after the trees. Ideally you would be able get a team of volunteers to help on the planting day too!
