Community orchard blossoms

Maungaturoto will get a new community orchard after locals donated enough cash and saplings for 60 trees.

Diana Moore posted a call to action on the Maungaturoto community Facebook page.

“We’ll have everything from the usual apples and plums to pomegranates and persimmons,” Diana says.

“Families will be able to go and pick fruit for free!”

The orchard will be based at the Maungaturoto Country Club.

Volunteers are required for a planting day on Saturday August 13, at 10am.
