Glenan Orchard

Glenan Community Forest is pleased to have won funding for a community orchard, as announced to all during the community AGM last November. The mix of fruit trees and shrubs will be planted next autumn/winter 2021-2022, but work on clearing space and erecting fencing for the orchard has already begun to meet the grant deadline.

The site is an area of non-native conifer plantation next to the Chip Shop. Volunteers have been moving the brash from the site and preparing it for planting during the coming weeks/ months. The hope is that once the trees start fruiting; juice, jam and cider making events will be open to the community to enjoy.

The orchard should also be important to local wildlife, whether nesting, pollinating, or munching etc!

Please do contact us, as ever, if you would like to help in any way at
