The Friends have three main aims:
To keep alive the rich orchard heritage that is traditional in Devon.
To enhance the orchard as a community asset and place for quiet recreation.
To ensure the orchard is managed sympathetically for wildlife.
By working with other like-minded groups across South Devon, we will help keep the rich West Country apple heritage alive and well; by promoting local community use, we will ensure the orchard is valued as a unique asset in the town and is kept free from development; and by working closely with Dartmouth Town Council, we will ensure the orchard is well managed to achieve all three aims.
