Trumpington Community Orchard
Project Category: Informal community group
Trumpington Community Orchard was founded in 2007 with help from Cambridge City Council, BBC Breathing Places Fund and the Co-operative Society. The orchard is volunteer run with free , open access to visitors. The site is planted with Cambridgeshire heritage fruit trees ( mostly apples plus a plum and greengage ) under planted with a wildflower meadow and enclosed by a mixed native hedgerow. Our aim is to provide a green haven for local wildlife and a peaceful spot for local residents to enjoy. The area has a number of habitat enhancement features such as a swift tower, observation beehive, bat and bird boxes, insect bricks, a bug hotel and a stag beetle pyramid.
We hold a number of events through the year starting in january with a wassail which has been held every year since our formation. In spring people can come and learn to graft apple trees . Later in the year moth night and bat walks have been held. Summertime stories and bug hunts are also on the events calendar.
