The Wambachers started a meadow orchard with a joint planting campaign.
- The first step for a meadow orchard in the settlement in Wambach has been taken.
Last Saturday, four members of the local horticultural association and baptistery mayor Stefan Haberl met for the planting campaign.
Local councilor Michael Lechner (WGW) had the idea for this.
He immediately met with open ears at Haberl. He enthusiastically made the parish land available. With Lechner's father Sepp, an expert in fruit trees supported the campaign. Because the Apfe-Sepp, as it is called by most, is a very busy fruit tree grower. He donated the fruit trees and showed everyone how to properly plant a tree and tie it to the stem. He chose "all of the early varieties so that people can eat down from the tree". Because the fruit is freely available to everyone. His choice fell on the apple "Schöner von Bath", the "Williams Christ" pear, both originally from England, and the early plum "Wangenheim". The Apfe-Sepp could not say exactly whether her name comes from a noble family or a place in Thuringia.
Hans Algasinger and Josef Berg also helped with the planting, as the Lechner had long been members of the horticultural association.
The Apfe-Sepp will take care of the maintenance in the future.
Haberl promised him support from the building yard.
The site is a building plot, half of which was already torn off for the settlement's playground a few years ago, the mayor said.
“While walking, my father and I saw that the ground at the entrance to the settlement was a bit overgrown.” They wanted to change that and that's how the idea came about, recalled Michael Lechner.
But the first three trees were not enough.
Haberl and the local council loosened the soil next to the road and removed the dry grass in order to sow a meadow for bees.
He pondered other ideas.
You could still grow raspberries for snacking, perhaps with children in the horticultural association's holiday program, or set up a quiet bench.
Michael Lechner would like to talk to the local carpenter about this.
Perhaps a solstice celebration could be held here again, as it used to be a few meters further to the right.
Taufkirchen's administrative director Martin Bauer has now built his own home there.
He offered to mow the meadow, said Haberl.
He hopes that many more such actions will follow in the municipality.
