Cambridgeshire Launch Saturday 17th February, 10.00am – 3.00pm Girton College and Orchard, Cambridge, CB3 OJG
Orchards East is an exciting new environmental and cultural project covering six counties in the East of England – Bedfordshire Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Landscape Group in the School of History at the University of East Anglia (UEA) is undertaking a three year project to research, conserve and promote the region’s orchards, their legacy and their future. It builds on work by partner organisations including the East of England Apples and Orchards Project, Cambridgeshire Orchard Group and the Suffolk Traditional Orchard Group. A collaborative project working with existing county orchard groups, other interested organisations and orchard owners, Orchards East hopes to stimulate interest and engage a wide range of new volunteers in all things orchard. Amongst other things the project will:
Survey and record the history of orchards across the region;
Identify surviving sites and record new orchards;
Research the history of fruit growing in the region;
Undertake surveys of the biodiversity and wildlife of orchards;
Help restore important old orchards and create new community orchards;
Simply celebrate and enjoy orchards, past, present and future!
