Productive Community Orchards in Resilient Green Spaces - Applications now open!

In Productive Community Orchards, Social Farms & Gardens will support 10 new Community Orchard sites to plant around a hundred new edible fruit and nut trees each. These sites will also receive training and support through peer networking opportunities to help build skills to manage and move into future processing.

In addition, we will also work with established community Orchard sites looking to move into processing to pilot, monitor and evaluate the economic benefits that community orchards could provide in addition to the well-recognised social and environmental benefits. 

We are now seeking expressions of interest from suitable sites and organisations that we can support through provision of edible fruit and nut trees for orchard creation and fruit storage, processing & production equipment. 

We are looking to establish new community orchards where access to quality Green Infrastructure is limited.  We will select sites to have a good geographical spread across Wales with a priority to support urban and peri urban (on the edge of settlements) areas.  You can apply for support with trees or for processing and storage equipment, or both.

Notes:
i.    We are not offering cash grant funding  
ii.    A selection of trees, materials and processing equipment will be offered through internally approved suppliers 
iii.    We may not be able to provide all of the above to all sites

For more information and to apply, go to the Social Farms and Gardens website or contact wales@farmgarden.org.uk.
