Follaton Arboretum, Totnes
Orchard compliments an amazing arboretum
Totnes has three community orchards that encourage the growing of edible trees and plants in public places. Their care is coordinated by the Incredible Edible project group, which is part of Transition Town Totnes.
Follaton Arboretum is in the grounds of Follaton House, the council offices. An orchard of 50 apple, pear and plum trees was planted in the Follaton arboretum in February 2012 on a north-facing slope, and its trees are just beginning to fruit.
Information about these orchards and the activities in them can be found on the Transitiontowntotnes website.
