The 'Create an Orchard Scheme' has been a wholly successful community project helping to establish 20 new orchards across the district. All the fruit trees are native, locally sourced trees from the Apple and Orchards project in East Cambs. The trees will increase biodiversity across the district and help in the fight against climate change, providing carbon sequestration, homes and nourishment for wildlife as well as shade.
The locations of the new orchards can be viewed using the map below:
We hope the orchards will be treasured and enjoyed by wildlife and communities for generations to come.
The council intends to run a similar scheme later in 2022. If you have any ideas please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
