We also run a nursery dedicated to growing orchards for community locations across Sussex. We are developing a forest garden and permaculture sample beds for use both as support for our courses and for opportunities for the general public and schools. We run severla eco clubs in schools and intiatives to develop growing practices within the school grounds, that will engage their local communities. We have another project that is mapping, picking, processing and disseminating fruit from sources that would otherwise be wasted. This is our scrumping project.
