Orchards planted this winter

on .

With our partners Action in rural Sussex and Brighton & Hove Food Partnership, a number of new small orchards have been created in schools locally and a little further afield in Sussex. We have helped pupils and community members to create orchards that, all being well, will bear fruit for 50 to 100 years.

Also, work has begun on a large orchard at Racehill in Brighton, where eventually we hope that around 200 fruit trees will be planted (find out more).
