Community Gardens and Orchard
Late last year, a group of enthusiastic village members came together to set up a community orchard to reinvigorate the Bourton allotments, and to beautify the village by planting wildflowers and bulbs at various locations. The gardens aim to create a new community space, encourage our kids (and us adults!) to grow their own sustainable food, and energise local conservation and climate efforts.
The orchard now boasts >20 fruit trees, and provides a space that all villagers can use, tucked away with views over the village and the vistas beyond!

The group (the Bourton Community Gardens Project) is working in conjunction with the Bourton Parish Council and includes members of the Old School and Parochial Church Councils.
If you would like to be part of this new and thriving community, would like to sponsor a tree, or would just like to visit the site to see what’s unfolding, please contact Tom Dixon from the Bourton Community Gardens Association on BourtonCGA@gmail.com.
Over the coming months, we will be looking for donations of unused garden benches, polythene sheeting and various garden equipment – so if you have anything you are not using, we would love to hear from you.
Please note, there are also a limited number of allotment plots now available within the village – if you’re interested in growing more of your own fruit and vegetables please get in touch.
This project is made possible through funding from:
Bourton on the Hill Parish Council
We also acknowledge the kind contributions from other village members who wish to remain anonymous
