A Space for our Community to Grow
#Socially Connected #Climate Conscious
Why and What
In a world of climate instability and global events the importance of locally grown food is not insignificant and increasing awareness of seasonality and providing habitat for pollinators will add value to the biodiversity of the area.
The Carrbridge Community Orchard aspires to meet the ambitions identified in the Community Action Plan for a more Socially Connected Carrbridge and a Climate Conscious Carrbridge
This is a space for everyone and we are excited that Carrbridge Primary School are interested as part of their Eco Schools project.
We aim to make this a multi ability and intergenerational space where we can meet and share friendship as well as produce.
We aim to increase the amount of fruit, herbs and some vegetables being grown and used locally. These will be free to anyone who wants to use it.
The project is open to all, it will develop over 3-5 years and then we will all need to pull together a few times a year to maintain the area and pick the fruit.
You can Get Involved at any stage in planning , developing and maintaining the orchard, there is something for everyone.
We would appreciate your help in planning what is important to you to help shape the Orchard as it develops.
