Tamar Grow local is working with communities to plant and maintain orchards in the Tamar valley.

We are supporting the development of a community orchard in the valley and we are also working with landowners to manage existing orchards with community involvement. If you own an orchard and would like help with its management and want to share the harvest with your local community please let us know. Community involvement could involve any or all of the following, Grafting, Planting, Pruning, Harvesting, Apple pressing, Wassailing.
