Community Orchard Project South East (COPSE) is a social enterprise set up to engage and network with other community organisations and landowners to create and enhance community orchards in and around Surrey and further afield in the South East.
Community orchards benefit User Groups by:
🍏Providing a focus for community events, activities and training.
🍎Being a vehicle for social cohesion ~ working groups, events and food sharing.
🍏Providing a community resource ~ a place for quiet reflection and casual recreation.
🍎Being a source of locally-grown, seasonal fresh fruit.
🍏Creating traditional orchards for wildlife and increasing biodiversity.
Another key feature of COPSE is that where we plant trees to help fulfill local and regional tree planting targets we do so in a community-centred way ensuring that the trees are cared for and produce fruit that is distributed where it can be best used for community benefit, thus adding to local resilience.
