Milton Country Park Community Orchard


In October last year I was asked by Sarah Harris, the co-ordinator of the MCP Community Orchard Project, to design a logo for them.  The orchard only has heritage apple trees, so I came up with the idea for the design quite quickly - a tree within an apple incorporating some birds and flowers.  I also designed the type-face with leaves attached to some of the letters.

They have been busy fencing the area to protect it from deer and rabbits as well as planting ten new trees.  They will also be sewing wild flower seeds, hedge planting and creating a wildlife pond.  Yesterday new signs were installed featuring my logo, made by Rowan Humberstone, a local charity established in 1984, which brings artists and learning-disabled people together in the production of fine artwork and crafts.

It's great to be able to support this wonderful project, MCP is a place I visit every day with my dog and it's inspiring to see all this carried out by volunteers.
