Adopting a tree is a fun and easy way to help the environment and makes a unique and long-lasting gift. A great gift for birthdays, anniversaries, or as a memorial for a family member or loved one.
You will have the opportunity to either come plant a new fruit tree or we can plant it for you or you can adopt an existing tree. Planting times are between Nov & Feb.
When you adopt a tree:
- You will receive a Tree adoption certificate which will be personalised with a photo of the tree, an optional special message & the GPS coordinates of the tree.
- We will write your name on the stake that supports the tree.
- Your tree will also appear on our online map with your name on it as well as photos of the tree & it's GPS coordinates.
- You can come and visit & care for your tree whenever you like as well as picking some of its fruit.
This is your chance to contribute to this amazing community project and leave a lasting legacy for St Ives.
Cost for a fruit tree in the orchard is £50. Alternatively, if you volunteer 20 x at the orchard, you can get the same deal.
