Apple blossom

For local communities


There are many opportunities for community members to support the centres in looking after their orchards, including help with:

  • pruning, care and other gardening jobs
  • designing for example Apple Day posters
  • teaching young people about fruit trees and how to care for them
  • planning and preparing fruit based produce that can then be sold
  • selling centre-grown fruit
  • building seating, sculptures or mosaics to make new orchards even more attractive places in which to stop and sit

If you would like to get involved as a volunteer, please speak to a support or youth worker at your local YMCA or Foyer.
