Fenland Orchards Project

Fenland Orchards Project is a 3-year Heritage Lottery-funded project to create a community orchard using heritage root stock.

We will be planting 100 traditional fruit trees on a site on Lynn Road in Wisbech. Along with the orchard, we'll also be building an outdoor classroom and other community facilities. This will be a site made by and for the community. In addition to the site, we'll be running an engagement programme that will include traditional crafts and celebrations, oral histories, wildlife conservation as well as many volunteer opportunities.

The 3-year programme has been developed by CP Learning Trust, working closely with a steering group with members representing the Cambridgeshire County Council, Wisbech in Bloom, the Wisbech & Fenland Museum, Natural Cambridgeshire, ECHO Company CIC, Orchards Academy and Clarion Housing.
