Apples, nectarines, apricots and cherries are just some of the varieties recently planted in a grove of community fruit trees around the Domain Playground in Millicent.
“Visitors to our parklands, both young and old, will be able to pick fresh fruit straight from the tree.” Wattle Range Chief Executive Officer, Ben Gower said.
“Community fruit tree projects are popping up all over the globe, and we hope to expand the number of edible plants in our parks and gardens across the Council area in the future. Not only do they provide a free healthy eating option, but they also help educate the younger members of our community about where our food comes from." Mr Gower added.
