Banbury’s Urban Orchard
Banbury Town Council in collaboration with local community groups Banbury Trees and others, are excited to be planting an Urban Orchard, as a contribution to the nationwide project to commemorate the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III.
We are planting 60 fruit trees in parks and on routes around Banbury, which will contain a mix of Apples, Pears and others edible seasonal fruits. Our aim is to increase tree cover, increasing biodiversity for the benefit of wildlife and the environment, and provide free access to delicious seasonal fruit. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help make this happen.
