Eastbourne Community Orchards
on: July 26, 2013, 14:50

This new group will next be meeting at Eastbourne Town Hall on Tuesday 6th August at 6.30pm. All are welcome. Any ideas you may have about how this group could organise its work and what sites would be suitable for it to work on are most welcome. The co-ordinator for this group at the moment is Councillor James Murray, who can be contacted at: councillor.murray@eastbourne.gov.uk


This group aims primarily to increase the number of fruit trees within public spaces in Eastbourne, but many other kinds of food plants could also be grown alongside these fruit trees if site circumstances permit. Increasing the number of fruit trees increase local food security and increases public access to fresh local, organic fruit. Also, fruit trees increase the biodiveristy of the local area, vital for the many pollinator species at risk from declining numbers and health.
