May trees

Thanks to Trees For Cities, friends at Summerwood Community Garden & St Anns Community Orchard the Zig Zag’s now have four new trees to add to our budding fruit collection!

Lots of kind folk work hard to din in a damson, plum, pear and apple. The rains came just in time too, these trees have been well watered in.


As well as planting there was also some extreme pruning along the boundary!

Thanks to Julio for the tools (might we recommend a hard hat next time!) and Grace for the delicious cake.
