Colwall Orchard Group

is a small charity set up to restore, promote and celebrate traditional orchards – why not join us

 

What we do

Working entirely with volunteers, we

  • created and manage a community orchard in Colwall (this includes allotment plots managed by Colwall Allotment Association).
  • restored the Apple Packing Shed and installed an environmental education classroom (see report here)
  • run seasonal events, such as our Apple Day and Wassail to celebrate our orchard heritage (see our events page)
  • share our enthusiasm for orchards with all sorts of people; through talks, walks and events, including sessions for school children
  • teach people practical orchard management skills
  • encourage everyone to enjoy sustainable local orchard produce
  • have lots of fun!
