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.

We're crowdfunding to save our community cider hub. Can you help?

Help us continue rescuing London’s unwanted fruit and turning it into scrumptious cider.
