Newbury Community Orchard Pruning Events 2023

Growing Newbury Green have planted 6 community orchards across Newbury on Town Council managed land and the idea of the projects is to provide free fruit to anyone living locally and walking in the parks as well as re-introduce old Berkshire bred varieties of apples.

This year we have two public pruning events in March.

Sunday 12th March - Sayers Close orchard
Greenham RG14 7UU at 10am

Saturday 25th March - Barn Crescent
orchard, south Newbury RG14 6HD at 10am

Please come along and find out about the orchards and how we prune them. No experience necessary. If you have an apple tree at home and you’re not sure how to treat it, this is the day for you as we will be giving hints and tips on how to get the best form the trees.

All you need to bring is yourself, decent footware if it’s damp and ideally a pair of secateurs. Other equipment will be provided by us.

Please contact: orchards@hammondt.plus.com or call 07881 654990 for more information.
