A Trip to Stratford’s Community Orchard, PEI

The orchard – Year 2

Scott and I took a stroll through Stratford’s new community orchard last week. The orchard was planted last year as part of the community garden and is located behind the Cotton center.

We wandered through the three rows of plants; apple trees, pear trees, elderberries, highbush blueberries, and cherries were beginning to bloom. The trees are pretty small, but in a few years they’ll be producing beautiful fruit. The photos below are just a preview of what’s to come at the orchard.

I’m so happy to see these beautiful green spaces popping up all over our Island communities. I can’t wait to visit in a couple years once the trees have really had a chance to take root.
