Key Document - Carrbridge Community Orchard Management Plan

#Socially Connected  #Climate Conscious

A Community Orchard was an identified project in the Community Action Plan since 2011, most recently in the CAP 2022-2030

Why and What

Orchards have increased in communities across Scotland over the years and there is growing evidence of their importance in improving physical and mental wellbeing.

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.
