Newquay Community Orchard is a multifunctional community space designed to improve people’s perception on the environment whilst providing education; mental health therapy and food security.

The orchard is set in 7 acres of land in the heart of Newquay. The site is currently under construction with the help of volunteers and since January 2015 we have planted over 500 woodland trees and heritage Cornish fruit trees. We also have a community growing space with multiple beds where we have planted a variety of vegetables, fruits and herbs. The site uses forest gardening techniques and principles and organic growing methods. Site plans also include two amphitheaters for events and a community building and cafe using sustainable building methods.
