As part of its 2021 apple tree planting season, Thatchers Cider is introducing a Community Orchard Project.
The company is offering ten community groups the chance to receive ten apple trees each, ready for planting in their own community orchards or local environments. Selection will be made on 18th February.
Martin Thatcher said: “During these very difficult times, we’ve all come to appreciate even more the benefits of outdoor space. For those in towns and cities, a community orchard can make such a difference to people’s wellbeing. In health and care environments, small orchards, too, can provide respite and tranquility throughout the year.”
Community groups wishing to be considered for the chance to receive ten trees from Thatchers Cider, should email firstname.lastname@example.org explaining about your community and why planting trees is important to you. Or visit Thatchers Facebook page.
