Whyke Community Orchard, Chichester

Urban growing at its very best. The Whyke Community Orchard was no more than a disused pocket of brambles and fly-tipped rubbish when volunteers turned up in September 2013. Now the site has a 17 fruit trees, including rare Sussex variety apples, and grafted cherries, a beautiful winding woodchip path and natural hedging along one side of the plot for protection.

We have a resident herbalist who gives talks about the plants found on the orchard.

Capacity: 25.
