The planting of orchards on Town Council land giving the community the opportunity to pick sustainably grown local fruit.
CASE STAGE: Well established and running
LOCATION: Chepstow – Wales (UK)
TRANSITION CONNECTION: Yes
GOVERNANCE: Not defined
We wanted to have local orchards to show fruit can be grown locally making our town more sustainable. In the process the local council would be made more aware of sustainability as we used their land. Local people would benefit from the fruit and skilled to look after their own fruit trees.
DOMAINS: Food and agriculture, Raising awareness about sustainability, climate change, healthy living, environmental issues, etc.
MiT note: Creating urban orchards. No need for phase 2 (no specific tool/framework identified for collaborating with the municipality). Not suitable for pilot (too specific intervention).
