The Orchard Project is the only national charity dedicated solely to the creation, restoration and celebration of community orchards. We aim to make a serious contribution to a better food system, based on people working together where they live to produce and harvest their own fruit.
We work closely with community groups in hubs around England and Scotland helping to design and create new orchards that will last for decades to come. We rebuild orcharding skills and knowledge, we run fantastic orchard celebration events and we help groups make the most of their bumper harvests.
Our aim is that in every city, town and village across the country, every home is within easy-reach of productive, well-cared-for, community-run orchards. Orchards that are making a significant contribution to the country’s fruit provision, that are building stronger communities and that are providing cherished, nature-rich, community spaces used by a wide range of people.
