New project: Wildlife at Racehill Community Orchard
Racehill Community Orchard adjoins Whitehawk in East Brighton. Brighton Permaculture Trust manage the orchard working with Brighton & Hove Food Partnership. We also work closely with Brighton & Hove City Council whom manage the Whitehawk Hill Local Nature Reserve in which the orchard is located.
The new project is all about improving the orchard for beneficial wildlife and enabling people to enjoy it. The project will:
– Run 9 volunteer sessions to improve biodiversity & engage people
– Install a ‘cabin’ to as a base for visiting groups, workshops and volunteers
– Run 6 bespoke educational workshops to improve biodiversity & transferable skills of attendees
– Produce a Guide to the Ecology of the orchard
This project has been made possible by a grant from Postcode Local Trust, a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
