Racehill Community Orchard launched in January 2013 on a 3 acre site in East Brighton overlooking Whitehawk and down to the sea. The aim is to plant over 200 fruit trees and thousands of native hedgerow species so that in future years locals can enjoy the free fruit harvest. The orchard is managed by a community group of local people who volunteer at least 3 times a month to plant trees, undertake conservation activities and enjoy being outside.
We hold regular activity days where anyone is welcome to come and get stuck in, or simply enjoy the space. We also welcome any school or volunteer groups to come and lend a hand. If you would like to get involved in any of our activities, get in touch!
