Story

Could you help Abingdon Carbon Cutters fundraise enough to put up an information sign at the Community Orchard in Boxhill Park?

The board will explain how fruit trees are important to insects and mammals as well as useful to humans. ACC wants to include information about endangered insects, but also how to tell when the fruit is ripe, and ideas of what to make with it. The trees and their fruit is for the local community to use and enjoy for years to come!

ACC are inviting local children to build solitary bee nest boxes to encourage pollination (and therefore fruiting!) of the trees in the future. The more children know and understand the world around them, the more they will respect it.

Information signs need to be carefully designed and built to weatherproof standards. We need at least £1250 for the sign - every contribution will help.

In autumn 2020, ACC supported Abingdon Town Council to plant the 20 fruit trees in Boxhill Park. These were underplanted with spring bulbs to provide pollen and nectar to bees as they come out of hibernation. An information board would be a way of encouraging more people to respect the local area and become involved with the Community Orchard project (we hope!).
