Ramsgate Community Memory Orchard

Another twitter discovery the Ramsgate  Community Memory Orchard. I have never heard of the either but this is from the Facebook page they have :-
We are a local community group developing unloved and forgotten public land into dementia friendly spaces bearing organic fruit for all to taste and enjoy.

Ramsgate is an amazing town and we want to give something back to the people and its spaces. There is a disused and unloved spot on the cliff top next to the Courtstairs park and we would love to regenerate it by developing it into a community memory orchard.
This will contain fruit trees and bushes for people to enjoy fresh produce from. We also hope that people can find somewhere peaceful to hang hand written plaques in dedication to loved ones who are either living with or have died from dementia. The central bed will have fruit trees which people can hang written memories on which can be tied onto the trees.

I missed todays ROCK UP  AND SWAP DAY but here is a copy of the poster. Look out for more events
