We want as many people as possible to get involved with the project. Whether you are handy with a pair of loppers or passionate about apple pies, we have a role for you!

Our volunteers come from all walks of life. Some give an hour or two, as and when, and others like to volunteer more regularly. Everyone is welcome, whatever your age, interest or ability.

Join in with practical sessions to enjoy the fresh air and exercise,  carry out wildlife surveys or help us find out about orchard history in the library or from home.

If you’d like to know more about volunteering you can contact project officer Karen Humphries on khumphries@worcestershire.gov.uk or phone her on 01684 560616
