Growing Orchards ... Nurturing Community .... COPSE is social enterprise set up to engage with other community organisations and landowners to create and enhance community and traditional orchards in the South East.
Meanwhile COPSE CIC set-up Swan Barn 'Support the Wassail' account with the Garden Cider Company (www.thegardencidercompany.co.uk), where the apples picked by local residents are dropped-off and processed into Cider. This will provide a 20% investment in apple juice, that will be given back to Swan Barn Orchard Group for the Wassail in January 2023.
