Community Orchards Challenge Fund

How about a community orchard in Belstone? The Parish Council will be discussing this project at their next meeting on 8th September. Now is an opportunity to speak to a Parish Councillor about this project or maybe go along to the meeting and have your say. What a great opportunity to leave a living legacy for future generations to enjoy.

The North Devon Biosphere in partnership with Orchards Live and supported by the Devon County Council locality grants scheme and the National Lottery Heritage Fund (as part of the Pledge for Nature project) are offering small grants towards the creation and management of community orchards. Traditional orchards are in decline across Devon and are recognised for their important biodiversity and community value. For further information click the link below:
