Ballymena North has been working on a community orchard project recently. See the proposed site as above.
We thought it was time for us to offer an outdoor area as a resource to the community! The orchard will be a great place for people to come together and to be part of a common project. It will also be the opportunity to enjoy a picnic, to exchange gardening tips or to simply observe the nature and wildlife around the area!
As soon as weather allows us, we will be planting a large number of fruit trees in the rear grass area. It is expected to be ready for Spring 2021.
A later part of the project will include plantings fruit bushes and seeds to attract birdlife.
