“As a result, the number of community landowners involved in food growing has rocketed in recent years. In this Meet the Pioneers webinar, we’ll learn from two community-owned growing projects and from Social Farms and Gardens Scotland.
“Comrie Development Trust runs Comrie Community Orchard and Comrie Community Allotments at its Cultybraggan Camp site – an ex- Prisoner of War Camp.
“The orchard, which is managed by volunteers, has 40 varieties of apple along with plums, damsons, cherries, quinces, walnuts, hazels, fruit bushes and an edible hedge.”
