Trust Announce Bunker Sale
Sunday 6th July
Damsons, plums and a peach in glorious blossom! Pears and apples preparing to bloom too. Been removing tiny young aphids from apple blossom buds before they really get a hold. Also found a looper caterpillar on one of the trained apple trees. That was removed too. It’s a watching game! Sunday 4th May is the next Orchard Work Day. Let’s hope for a good day! We have some new special hazels to plant, pernicious weeds to keep under control on the insect bank, some more card and bark mulching to complete. It’s not all work, though. Good company with a rare crack at lunch time and usually some goodies in addition to one’s pack lunch! If it’s wet, the shepherd’s hut comes into its own! Come and join us if you can, to lend a hand or to find out all about Comrie Community Orchard!
A community in Perthshire has come together to work towards achieving sustainable community owned resources for the benefit of local people. Comrie Development Trust, set up in 2006, is a charitable organisation of volunteers and funded staff who care passionately about Comrie. They are working hard on the many projects – the environmentally sustainable development of Cultybraggan (the ex POW camp now owned by the community) – the reduction of the community carbon footprint in the Comrie Carbon Challenge as well as the many other projects.
