In order to create the fruit orchard at the Cherry orchard site we are putting out a call for people or groups who would like to sponsor a tree.
We are looking to plant more than 100. The trees will be producing apples for juice and cider by around 2014 if we can get them planted this winter. We are planning to source a variety of trees and apple types.
You will receive a certificate that details your tree number, its variety and exact location (gps). If you want to help plant your tree we will let you know when it will be planted.
You can donate using a credit/debit card or a paypal account
Young tree (1yr) – £10
A young tree that will take some time to produce fruit (4-5 years) costs around £10.
Mature tree – £25
A more mature tree (3-4 years old) that would allow us to start producing cider in around 2 years costs around £25
Allotments are prepared and ready on the Cherry Orchard/Duck Brook site.

Each plot is 10m by 10m and is ploughed and rotavated to help starting off.

Welcome to Worcestershire Community Land Cooperative. We are are a not for profit cooperative set up with the aim of using pieces of under-utilised land in Worcestershire for productive community use.
Our first project is to bring back a piece of wasteland into productive use. A ten acre site that is currently wild land will be developed into a cider orchard, allotments and enhanced biodiversity area that will take up over a third of the site.
