As mentioned before we were successful in getting another orchard grant from the Forth Valley Link (and all the funders at the bottom of this page) which is amazing! We decided to plant earlier this year in hopes to avoid the bad weather we encountered last February.
We were blessed with a very cold, but sunny morning for the planting. Ally lead an assembly at Blackridge Primary asking the students about their apple knowledge and telling them about the planting last spring.
It was a really great time planting- we’re so thankful for the help from Blackridge Primary.
The Forth Valley Orchard Initiative is funded by the Central Scotland Green Network Development Fund. The Central Scotland Green Network Orchard Grant Scheme 2013/2014, which is part of the initiative, covers the whole of the CSGN area.
