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.
We have a large quantity of fruit trees and hedging to plant. they have been sourced through the big tree plant (http://www.defra.gov.uk/bigtreeplant/).
We need loads of people to come help out. Hot drinks will be provided, along with hot soup if we get enough interest.
We will be postering the schools, and local area, so if you can help with that please contact us.
Help plant an orchard on 11 Feb 10:00am
Worcester Community Land Coop is planting an orchard in Cherry Orchard next to Battenhall Fields and Cherry Orchard Primary School. Come along and help us plant a tree and transform a wasteland into a valuable community resource.
Bring warm clothes, sturdy boots, work gloves and a positive attitude. If you have access to a spade or pickaxe please bring it. There may be some hot cider for those who work hard!
Bring your own mug for tea, coffee and cider.
The day will be fun and we will find plenty for people to do across the rest of the site also.
The site will not be accessible by vehicle directly. Please use the public footpaths. Access will be clearly defined.
Please get in touch for more information. Find details on our contact page
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
