Amber Valley District Council
United Kingdom

Two Duffield residents are seeking pledges of support from the wider Duffield community in order to transform an under utilised and under appreciated space in the centre of the village into a Community Orchard for the benefit of all Duffield residents.

The planned location of the Community Orchard is shown on the aerial photo and is space that was designated as a 'village green' as part of the Hawleys Colour Works housing development completed in 2002/03.

With our future generations and sustainability in mind, the orchard aims to encourage children and the wider community to forage for natural foods, fruit & nuts from a wide variety of trees/plants for free, with a view to facilitating a change in mindsets, creating opportunities to address obesity & healthy eating, and provide a better resource to connect our children and the wider community with our wider natural environment. It will also become an invaluable interactive educational resource for our 3 local schools, and will turn what is becoming an overgrown area into a better managed, more attractive, more productive space for the full Duffield community to enjoy.

The future of our community and village is your hands ....... so your help and support is appreciated.

Please pledge your support and provide any comments by clicking on 'Sign the Petition' below and if you are willing to actually help us turn this vision into reality or want to find out more please send a seperate private message to carl@duffieldorchard.co.uk
