The Orchard Project

Our Mission

To create new habitats and natural environments within the existing church field for the benefit of the local community and to be a sanctuary for wildlife within the parish. Over the past four years we have built a woodland walk, planted colonies of snowdrops and bluebells, and both annual and perennial wild flowers. We have more recently planted approx. 150 hedge saplings and ten fruit trees.

We will engage with the community throughout the life of the project and reach out to those within the parish able and willing to become involved in the ongoing development of the scheme. 

Our tasks for the coming 12 months

  • Plant up the raised beds with soft fruit and vegetables
  • Maintain the path through the woodland walk
  • Prepare ground and plant more native hedging plants obtained from the Woodland Trust [Nov 2024]
  • Maintain the grass around the fruit trees by regular cutting 
  • Continue to manage and develop the wild flower area and its fencing
  • Carry out surveys of the wild life within the orchard area
