About us

Charles Dickens Community Orchards are building on the established Cornwallis Crescent Community Orchard established in March 2016, which provides a much needed green oasis space in the centre of the city for people to enjoy with their families for picnics.  These are future legacy projects for our children and grandchildren. A place where free fruit is grown for local people, with meadow areas.  A place where people can volunteer to help water the trees in the hot weather and grow fruit bushes and flowers to help the bees come and pollenate the trees. We have been working on a masterplan that is expanding further now and are looking for your views some visit our face book pages and let us know what you think.

The Charles Dickens Community Orchards and Cornwallis Crescent Community Orchard are works in progress and the vision of Dennis David and Jon Stokes from the Tree council, other co founders are Trish Bell and Pauline Powell. We will continue planting more fruit trees around the city now. We need help with the funding through the lottery and from grants we have alot of different types of fruit bearing trees growing. Our aim is to have a foraging resource for the future.  

We are currently supported by Portsmouth city council and the Portsmouth & Southsea Tree Wardens and Tree Council. Encouraging local people to work together. The fruit trees also help to reduce the air polluntion in the city and make it a nicer place to live.

Our hopes for the future are to provide a free local resource for residents.  Maintained and looked after locally by volunteers.  This would include free training, providing horticultural knowledge and a local history and literature project linked to Charles Dickens and his love of apples for young people. We aim to get the younger members of the community involved. They could be tree champions suppoted by the national Tree Council. We have be working with the local schools to provide 8 orchards, community groups and are hoping to work with Portsmouth University too.  We aim to bring the local community together more to look after these valuable, lovely community assets. See our facebook pages Cornwallis Crescent Community Orchard Volunteers and the Charles Dickens Community Orchards latest information and updates on what is going on.

We need your help so we can continue to improve what free resources we have in the city.

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours Sincerely

Dennis David lead volunteer and Trish Bell Cofounders of the Charles Dickens Community Orchards
