Kirkfieldbank Community Orchard Planting and Pruning Day

About Kirkfieldbank Community Orchard Planting and Pruning Day

The annual pruning and planting day at Kirkfieldbank Community Orchard is being organised by Clyde Valley Orchards Cooperative Limited. This Sunday afternoon they will be planting a further 40 apple trees to extend the current orchard to over 160 trees. There will also be the opportunity to learn a how to prune and look after fruit trees.

All the equipment required to carry out the work will be supplied from Clyde Valley Orchards own tool store.

South Lanarkshire has the largest number of orchards in Scotland, with the current records showing that there are 213 throughout the county, The Kirkfieldbank Community Orchard has become one of the largest of these, and thanks to the work of the Clyde Valley Orchards volunteers has contributed to an additional 2000 new fruit trees planted all across the Clyde Valley area.

Duncan Arthur, a director of Clyde Valley Orchards, said: “Orchards are a wonderful, but potentially diminishing resource, with many of the small orchards in our traditional growing areas of the Clyde Valley falling into disuse. Helping out at our community orchard is a fantastic way to learn new skills, meet neighbours and enjoy the fresh air of the Clyde Valley.

As an added incentive tea, coffee, apple juice and cake will be available to all volunteers to keep them warm and motivated throughout the afternoon. The event will begin at 1:30pm and continue on until 4:30pm.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Kirkfieldbank Community Orchard Planting and Pruning Day are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
