Wolverton Community Orchard is now sixteen years old transformed from being a derilect piece of land a flytipping area to what you see today.It is a unique example of what can be achieved when a community work together and care about their environment in which they live and then make a positive change.

Come along and see the orchard in all its splendour with over 55 mixed fruit trees growing and ladened with delicious fruit for all to enjoy.

A sensory garden to tantalise our five senses.From the pungent smells of delicate roses and lavender to name a few to the edible variety of herbs,soft fruits and flowers.Then a mesmerising mix of colour and textures is a delight to see.Take a few moments to relax in our Peaceful Haven seating area all disabled accessible and enjoy a panoramic view of the whole orchard and listern to the delightful sounds of bird song.

Enjoy a taste of delicious homemade tea and cake from our Old Victorian Railway Carriage. Speak to some of the people who renovated the railway carriage and built the Peaceful Haven .We will have a wonderful display of photographs for you to see Allow your children to explore our Dragon Earth Scultor and Willow Feature .Then stroll through the wildlife area and pond .Explore our veg plots worked on by local school children.
