Always seeking new ways to encourage local, sustainable food initiatives which may benefit the community for years to come, Transition Sherborne have started a Community Orchard Group and are keen to work with local residents who are interested in setting up and running Sherborne’s first community orchard. Whilst searching for a suitable location, we have recently discovered a green space next to the allotments, between South Avenue and Lenthay Close which could prove an ideal site. This area already has some native trees and bushes and could have lots of potential for growing a wide range of delicious edibles! . . . → Read More: Time for a Community Orchard?

Our July event is a tour of Geoff’s Amazing Permaculture Allotment. Geoff only recently took on his allotment and with little previous experience of permaculture has managed to create a very unique and productive patch. Permaculture is a design process that can be applied to farming/growing that works in harmony with nature rather than against it. The outcomes tend to be higher yield with less work! As well as describing his own allotment Geoff will show us some of the others there, so we can see firsthand the unique environment allotments create. . . . → Read More: Permaculture Allotment Tour
