The Orchard Project is the national charity for community orchards. Our vision is big and bold – in cities across the UK, we want everyone to be within easy reach of a thriving community orchard.
Community orchards are a great enabler for making connections – with people, place, nature and food. We face a climate and ecological emergency that reinforces inequalities, and orchards enable people to take action in a meaningful and tangible way.
Please have a look at our new Strategic Plan which sets out The Orchard Project’s ambition for 2021 to 2025 around five strategic priorities:
- Improve access to orchards across wider social groups
- Enable sustainable communities
- Champion orchards
- Take action on climate and food through orchards
- Build a better The Orchard Project
Overall, the aim is to build momentum, deepen impact and increase influence – to uphold orchards for the long term to benefit people and planet.
