Community Orchard

apples

Now in its ninth year, the GPG Community Orchard in Cosmeston Country Park is becoming well established with fruit trees and the edible hedgerow doing well. There are lots of varieties of apple tree there, as well as pear, plum and medlar trees. 6 new apple trees were added to the orchard early in 2018 planted by pupils from Sully Primary School. The orchard is regularly maintained by GPG volunteers. A further 10 trees were planted this spring, thanks to a kind donation from one of the volunteers.

In 2018 GPG also donated 10 fruit trees to the Penarth Youth Action group, planted in Wordsworth Park.
