Fork to Fork

What do we do?

The Fork to Fork is a horticultural project set up and run by its project members. We work
our 2 acre land on a Thursday and a Friday every week from 10am until 4pm. We have an
on-site project delivery worker who provides expert horticultural guidance and volunteer
support. We have a fully furnished tool storage shed within Lancaster Brewery site.

Who are we?

We are a small team of 10-20 project members who cover all aspects of horticultural work
including propagation, strimming, basic tree work and planting. We have set up a protected
nursery area for growing, built bespoke shelters from which we collect our rainwater. We
work in a totally organic way creating distinct habitat areas. To date we have planted and
now care for nearly 3000 plants. We are growing a range of food producing plants from
unusual edibles such as the delicious Autumn Olives and Heartnuts to the more usual Plums
and Apples. In our forest garden we reuse as much as possible to create a beautiful, food
producing area rich in yields for us and wildlife.

Open to the public

Our site is open to the public and you can find it by visiting the Lancaster Leisure Park and
we are found adjacent to Lancaster Brewery. The Fork to Fork steering group has adopted and developed the New economics
Foundation’s 5 Ways to Wellbeing as a guide to the way in which volunteers develop and
grow as they work with is.

We are a project run by Piccadilly Support Services
