In 2010 a small community orchard was planted in Topaz Drive, Andover with the help of local residents and pupils from Portway and Harrow Way schools. Later pupils from these schools were involved in designing and making a mosaic and tree guard for the orchard. In 2014 wild flowers were planted in the area. The fruit trees continue to grow and produce fruit each year.
Since this first orchard other communities have joined together to plant community orchards in Augusta Park, Anna Fields, Hedge End Road.
Friends of the orchards are always need for pruning, weeding and generally looking after the area. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
