The Earley Community Orchard, Laurel Park, Earley, Reading, was planned and is maintained by the
Earley Community Orchard Group, with support from the Maiden Erlegh Residents Association (MERA)
and the Earley Environmental Group (EEG)
First conceived in 2014, it took a couple of years planning and negotiating with the local
authority (Wokingham Borough Council) for a suitable site.
