Headingley Community Orchard is an informal group with charitable objects operating under the auspices of the Headingley Development Trust, a community-owned organisation that promotes and develops a sustainable community in Headingley. There is a core group of half a dozen volunteers who meet when necessary to decide what needs doing. We’re people who live in or have some connection with the area and are interested in doing practical things to improve the environment. We’re keen to cooperate and work with other groups in the locality. Anyone interested in joining this ‘committee’ please get in touch!
If we can’t beg or borrow what we need, we have to find money for things like fence posts, trees, stakes, and necessary equipment. We rely on donations from local people but we have also been lucky in having had the support of Wade’s Charity, the Tudor Trust and St Chad’s Small Grants Fund as well as and the gift of two water butts from Yorkshire Water. We are very grateful for all the help we have received.
