We have a large number of schools, and community groups who are interested in receiving fruit trees as part of our programme - if you'd like to donate and make this possible please select from the options above.

If you are a business and would like to speak to us about your own carbon offset,  or an individual who would like to learn more please click here

Working in partnership with the Sustainable Food Trust and the Harmony Project the fruit trees from our carbon offset programme will not only provide a green space for students and local communities but form part of a wider educational package, a living resource which will beautifully (and deliciously) demonstrate seasonality and sustainability. 

In a nutshell, we are inviting environmentally responsible companies (and individuals) to “sponsor” fruit trees that are then donated to schools and community groups.  The trees are grafted and grown by ourselves at our nursery on behalf of the sponsors, with our focus as always in preserving rare and heritage varieties.  We have an extensive list of schools and pre-schools along with community groups who would love fruit trees!
 
Did you know?
 
An acre of apple trees can absorb 10-20 tonnes of carbon/annum (depending on the age and size of the trees) furthermore they can release 15 tonnes of oxygen into the environment. 90% of our fresh fruit and vegetables in the UK is imported.  By planting orchards we can instantly make a difference by reducing the need to import as much and to enjoy fruit as nature intended eating in season!
