Funding from South of Scotland Tree Planting Grant

Bright Green Nature has been awarded funding from the South of Scotland Tree planting grant to establish a native apple orchard at the Deer Park, Selkirk. BGN CEO, Dr Karen Blackport said "We are delighted to have received our first funding to create a native apple orchard. We will source heritage varieties local to the Scottish Borders to ensure that these lines are maintained. Some of the varieties can be traced back as far as Roman times. We are grateful to Borders Forest Trust for facilitating these efforts".
