Since the 1950s we have lost 60 per cent of our orchards through development or neglect, and even though there are 3,000 varieties of apple in England, we import 70 per cent of apples sold in shops. Despite this loss there is a growing interest in establishing community orchards - local projects run by local people, providing locally grown fruits and nuts. The Community Orchards Handbook shows groups and individuals how to start their own community orchard, from getting support, tackling legal issues and access to organising working parties and selling produce. It gives suggestions on 'apple mapping' and saving local varieties, and of course it gives practical advice on planting, harvesting and safeguarding your orchard. It includes a comprehensive resources section and examples of successful community orchard projects across the UK. *
