Lepton Community Orchard

We aim to create a community orchard by planting fruit trees at Lepton recreation ground and across the Ward. The orchard will be a living memorial for those who lost their lives during the Pandemic, and a tribute to all who worked to improve the lives of others. A place for all to reflect and remember loved ones.
We plan to plant vegetables, fruit and flowers, and have seating for individuals and groups to meet. We envisage: a natural area; forest/food garden; sensory and accessible planting, structures and pathways; all season interest; a book library/book exchange etc. We hope to celebrate festivals, hold events, share skills and activities, and provide food, eco improvements, and mental and physical health benefits for the community.
