Valleyfield Estate Community Orchard
- March 2016 Update


Did you know that it only takes five trees to make an orchard? We have many more than that here!

In February, over 250 children from 7 schools in Fife helped to transform this space into an orchard for wildlife and people to enjoy.

If you walk here regularly you may have recently met children and teachers from Torryburn, Saline, Inzievar, St Serfs, Tulliallan, Culross or Holy Name Primary Schools.

Alongside volunteers from West Fife Woodlands group, the children planted up the orchard then played orchard themed games and walked the snowdrop trail through the woods.

The 176 fruit trees planted are apple, pear, plum, cherry, quince, damson, gage and hazelnut. This new orchard includes 30 heritage trees - varieties that have grown in this area of Scotland for many years. It takes a while for an orchard to develop, so please be patient!

We expect trees to start producing fruit in 3 years.
