Getting involved in the Orchard

We are very keen for more people to get involved in the Community Orchard at Trenoweth. This is a description of what it is and how it works.

If you would like to get involved or find out more, please email Jonathan Smith jonathan@scillyorganics.com or find Transition Scilly on Facebook and leave a message.

 Following input from the community at last week's meeting, Transition Scilly will concentrate on these projects in 2018:

Community Orchard

  • Improving the management of the Orchard

  • Increasing the number of people visiting

  • Improve amenities for the Orchard

  • Increase the reach of the orchard to include fruit trees in gardens that people need help pruning/planting/harvesting

  • Celebrate key points in the orchard year

  • Provide easily accessible advice on orchard management

Waste

  • Support measures to reduce plastic waste

  • Look at opportunities to turn waste in to resources, especially waste wood

Water

  • Raise awareness of water issues on Scilly

  • Look at the feasibility of water fountains in public places

Transport

  • Encourage the creation of a car club for locals on St Mary's using electric vehicles run on low carbon electricity

Outreach and engagement

  • Increase the number of articles in local magazines/papers and on websites

  • Improve communication, including a redesigned and updated website

  • Engage with and provide representation to key documents, such as the Local Plan

  • Celebrate the achievements of all community groups and voluntary work

If you would like to get involved in some of these projects please get in touch on Facebook, send us an email enquiries@transitionscilly.org.uk or just look out for more news about upcoming projects and events.
