Wild Flower Meadow And Tideswell Community Orchard

We are genuinely lucky in Tideswell, being blessed with many people with in-depth knowledge about plants, environmental and horticultural matters.
With their invaluable help and advice it was decided we would grow cornfield annuals with red Flanders Poppies, yellow corn marigolds, pink corncockle, white campion and corn chamomile, and blue cornflowers.
Clearing The Land
The project was partially financed with help from a generous grant from the TDCA, and soon after Easter 2018 the final ground preparation was completed in time for the more exciting and creative process of sowing the first seeds to begin, for a beautiful display of summer cornfield annuals and poppies.
Ploughing And Sowing
Fancy becoming a "Friend"or "Grafter" of Tidza-Orchard? As with all community groups Tideswell Orchard needs passionate volunteers both skilled and knowledgeable or simply interested and enthusiastic to help us plant & care for the trees. If you are 'time-poor' perhaps you could lend or donate equipment. Interested? click Volunteer.
If you are a local business please join our existing sponsors, support us, and see what we can do for you too.
