In a recent survey of our volunteers:
* 100% felt their physical and emotional wellbeing had improved by helping in a community orchard.
* 83% said they felt more connected to other people through the orchard.
At a time when we are more isolated and stressed than ever, and increasingly disconnected from nature as a society, turning to our local green spaces for tranquility, gentle exercise and collaboration with others is a wonderful antidote.
Has an orchard helped you to feel calmer, stronger or more connected?
