Social Farms & Gardens is calling out for Welsh communities who want to plant edible fruit and nut trees or begin processing new fruit and nut products! 

The call-out is part of the Productive Community Orchards strand of their £1.27 million Resilient Green Spaces project.

Resilient Green Spaces is a partnership project being led by Social Farms & Gardens to pilot alternative re-localised food systems using communities and their green spaces as a driving force for change across Wales until June 2023. The project is funded through the Welsh Government Rural Communities - Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the Welsh Government and the European Union.

“We’re thrilled to launch our call-out for Productive Community Orchard sites,” said Gary Mitchell, Joint Social Farms & Gardens Wales Manager, “this work comes on the back of our hugely successful Orchard for Wales project in 2020. This time, we’re looking to support ten existing or new community sites to plant around 100 edible fruit and nut trees each and help them to store and process their produce. Please get in touch with us if you’ve been thinking about either.”

Interested community sites or organisations can find further information here, or by contacting wales@farmgarden.org.uk.

Groups that wish to be considered for the 2021 season need to apply by November 29th.

For more information about the wider Resilient Green Spaces project, and for other opportunities for communities as part of the project, please go to the Social Farms & Gardens website.
