Coronation Living Heritage Fund

Create a Coronation Community Orchard with new grant

Local communities could receive up to £10,000 towards the cost of a Coronation Community Orchard thanks to a new tree planting grant.

Between £200 and £10,000 is available to support the creation of community orchards within the district, including costs for trees, protection, fencing and installation.

The aim of the fund is for local community orchard creation projects to provide a lasting commemoration of this Coronation year, and to further the King’s lifelong work conserving the natural environment.

The UK Government has provided a total of £2.5 million in funding to local governments, through The Coronation Living Heritage Fund (CLHF), which celebrates the coronation of King Charles III and supports tree planting projects across England.

We are inviting applications from groups including schools, residents’ associations, community groups, charities, businesses, and parish/town councils to create community orchards on private or public land, which provide community access and engagement opportunities.
