Bridgetown Fruit & Nut Trees
Totnes has three community orchards that encourage the growing of edible trees and plants in public places. Their care is coordinated by the Incredible Edible Orchards, Totnes project group, which is part of Transition Town Totnes.
Many nut and fruit trees have been planted from Parkers Way playing field, Weston Lane playing field, up through the ‘chicken run’ to Elmhirst playing field and scattered around the houses in upper Bridgetown, including a small orchard in Meadow Close. The first ones were planted in 2007 and some are bearing plentiful nuts and fruit now.
Occasional days are held throughout the year for pruning and other care of these trees.
