Bringing orchards into the heart of urban communities
The Orchard Project is bringing community orchards to cities and towns across the country.
We are re-fruiting the country, working in partnership with communities to plant, manage, restore and harvest from their own orchards. We rebuild orcharding skills, celebrate orchard heritage and contribute to a better, locally-led food system.
Join Us! Help the UK's community orchards to thrive by becoming a member.
