Fruit-full Communities (FFC) project helped young people gain new skills and confidence needed to transform green spaces. This three year project had a positive impact on young people's health, wellbeing and prospects for the future!
Young people aged 11-24 living in YMCA or Foyer housing schemes, supported lodgings and/or attending youth clubs at YMCA and Foyer sites planned and planted their own orchards, becoming environmental leaders of tomorrow.
The project - funded by the National Lottery Community Fund - was part of a new initiative called Our Bright Future. Click here to learn more about the FFC project and where we planted orchards across England and Wales.
The Fruit-full Communities project has now completed but there are many useful guides on how to plant and look after trees here.
