A Food for Change community

Our community

There are lots of inspiring activities taking place in Newquay for you to get involved with.

Newquay Community Orchard is a beautiful space where people can come together to work, rest and play. Volunteer at the orchard on a regular basis and attend exciting one-off events too.
