-Great news! We are delighted to be working with Grayshott Parish Council to be part of bringing a Community Orchard to Grayshott!
COPSE are engaging with the local community to help create a vision for what this orchard might look like and how it could be used.
We’ll be asking ‘How might you use the shared space?’ That might look like a forest school space for nurseries linked to the EYFS, or an outdoor classroom space for school children linked to the National Curriculum, outdoor activities for Scouts, or well-being and natural health activities to support mental health across the ages, conservation tasks or gardening clubs – the list is potentially endless!
And let’s not forget life’s simple orchard pleasures like a space to read a book, or sit and chill under the canopy of a blossoming tree....?
Spring is in the air, let’s look forward....
