CDT's Orchard Working Group secured funding from Awards for All, LEADER, Perth & Kinross Council and a very generous private donation to fund the creation of Comrie Community Orchard, plant an edible hedge, purchase picnic tables, tools, install a deer grid at the entrance of Cultybraggan Camp, a duck enclosure and for a Shepherd’s Hut with a wood burning stove.
One of the main tasks for the group is to manage the orchard for the benefit of the community of Comrie and the committee meets regularly to discuss how best to do this. The group meets once a month for work days and hosts community harvesting of the many fruits and berries for juice/cider production to generate an income. They host a popular Apple Day every October.
The group would like to extend a massive thank you to everyone that has been and continues to be involved. Find out more about volunteering.
Visitors are welcome to wander and picnic in the orchard. You may meet the ducks who are often let out of their enclosure to forage.
