Community orchards across Salford

City of Trees worked with local community groups, creating eleven community orchards across the City of Salford.

In total 157 fruit trees were planted in eleven different orchards across the City, with types of trees including apple, pear, plum and cherry to name just a few.

Working alongside local residents, schoolchildren and members of the community some parks including Monmouth Park in Salford benefitted from other improvements such as new benches and community seating.

The 10 community orchards are situated in: Parkway, Little Hulton; Parr Fold Park, Walkden; Walkden High School; Lightbourne Green, Swinton; Lightoaks Park, Claremont; Riverbank Park, Kersal; Albert Park, Broughton; Green Grosvenor Park, Broughton; Ordsall Allotments, Ordsall; Monmouth Park, Ordsall and Fairhills Road, Irlam.

The projects have been funded through various sources including Salford Health Improvement Service, Tesco Bags of Help and Greggs Foundation.
