An Orchard Inventory Project is being run to map and survey all the potential orchard sites in Scotland (see links) - and Central Scotland Green Network Trust need your help mapping the ones in North Lanarkshire!

Over the next 6 weeks, volunteers are required to visit sites identified in the desk study as potential orchards to confirm if they are indeed an orchard or not, and if they are, to take some basic details where possible.

All resources will be provided as well as short training sessions if you feel it necessary. £2.50 travel expenses per site is available. Many of the orchards in North Lanarkshire are close together, so it should be possible to do 4 or 5 in a day.

If you’re interested in being involved, please get in touch with Emilie Wadsworth at Central Green Scotland Network Trust know, letting her know how much time you can offer or how many sites you might be able to manage.
