St. Ives Community Orchard
Community orchard and wildlife reserve
St Ives Community Orchard has been planted for the benefit of the local wildlife and community.
The aim of the project is to create an area with a variety of different fruit trees and shrubs to enhance the biodiversity, provide wildlife habitats and for the community to get involved with looking after the orchard, enjoying the nature & socialising and picking their own fruit.
It is in a beautiful and tranquil spot at the top of the town with views of the ocean and the moors, right next to the Palemon Best Recreational Park & Skatepark.
See the website or Facebook page.
The orchard is looked after by volunteers who meet there regularly to clear the brambles, bracken and look after the trees.
We also organise community events like Apple Day & Wassail. We are always looking for more volunteers to help so if you are at all interested, do come along and have a chat / join in or contact us with any queries.
See dates and times of work parties on the website.
