Quaker orchard takes root

Apples, apricots, damsons, pears and plums are amongst the first fruits to feature in a new Quaker orchard.

The organic orchard has been established by Friends in Surrey as an active witness in support of the Canterbury Commitment.

A field belonging to Capel Local Meeting is the home for this fruity venture and the first trees were planted by a group of volunteers late last month. Among them were friends from Dorking and Capel. They were joined by the local Anglican minister, Liz Robertson, and some Capel villagers.
