If you are a local resident there are many ways you can play a part in realising the vision of the orchard. Working days are the first Saturday of every month (weather permitting), and you can become a supporter – receiving news, updates and invitations to orchard events – for just £10 a year. Full membership is open to anyone living within half a mile of Huxhams Cross and at £40 (reviewed annually) entitles you to a share of the produce and involvement in the day-to-day management of the orchard.
If you are a local organisation you can help us with our fundraising in the knowledge that you are supporting a grassroots community project with real benefits. Sponsor a tree (see below) or a set of tools, or support a larger project such as fencing or a wooden building that will keep tools secure and allow us to extend learning opportunities to the wider community.
Sponsoring a tree is open to individuals and organisations. £25 buys a young tree with all the compost and protection it needs to make a good start in life. Come and help plant your tree, dedicate it, track it’s location on our tree map, and watch it thrive to bear fruit.
