The project will develop the whapples Community Orchard into a community space and outdoor learning resource by landscaping the area, constructing accessible paths and creating a seating/social area and installing a tree of celebration. The whapples pupil team are passionate about making this space usable by the whole community. Their long term vision is to see this area used for producing fruit juices and to encourage healthy eating and low food miles. The first steps have been fundraising to plant the apples trees in the orchard and they now have over 103 trees and soft fruits. They would now like to install seating, paths and a conservation area which would encourage wildlife. They see this as an area which the whole community would use and enjoy and encourages both young and old to work together.
