The Dornoch Community Garden have received a donation of 420 wild fruit saplings from the Woodland Trust. This hedge, when mature will provide a bountiful resource for wildlife and wild fruit pickers.
This was a community event and a wonderful opportunity for all ages to get involved in planting a tree . People weree invited to come to the Glebe Field, behind the Meadows Nursing Home on Saturday, 19th November - to help plant a few of the saplings or just to support us.
Waterproof footwear and warm coats were strongly recommended and hot soup and rolls were be provided. The work was done in just over 2 hours and the new hedge looks very smart . The Community orchard has been strimmed in readiness for planting wildflower seedd early next year.
Please feel free to contact me if you require further information.
