NEXT MEETING 2018:
Our September meeting took place at the Barn Crescent orchard, where we were able to harvest some
fruit for the first time and gave away some apples to passing residents.
More harvesting to come in October as the next batch of apples ripen.
Our first attempt to graft trees onto rootstocks! A great way to propagate rare tress and replace damaged stock. This is a Charles Ross about 6 weeks after grafting - you can still make out the roll of tape in the middle where the graft is. Admittedly this was the only success of 5 attempts, but the remaining rootstocks are healthy and give us the chance of trying again.
Newbury In Bloom 2018:
The trolleys are getting into place for this year's Newbury In Bloom. Here's some photos from Newbury Station, who have once again given us space on each platform, even, even during the electrification upgrade work for the station.

Welcome to the Growing Newbury Green website
We're a group dedicated to encouraging local communities in Newbury
UK to grow food in open spaces and sharing the harvest.
For our first projects we've planted 5 orchards in Newbury - you can find
out about them here as well as the local apple varieties we're
re-introducing to our town.
