The People’s Orchard is a three year environmental enhancement project for the ward of St. Dogmaels.

  • Its aim is to create a series of bio-diverse ecosystems throughout the area to encourage a pollinator friendly environment.
  • In tandem with the extensive planting programme of fruit trees and wild flower meadows will be an educational programme aimed at all age ranges across a broad range of skills.
  • We will tackle invasive species such as Himalayan Balsam and Japanese Knotweed
  • We will work with our Orchardist to maintain and improve existing orchards.
  • Each “eco-system” will be monitored scientifically from the outset to assess any improvement in biodiversity.



We have a lot of exciting things planned here at The People's Orchard for 2017, with lots of opportunities for volunteering and education for all ages.
