the pippin project

A community and environment project in Wiltshire


An exciting and wonderful arts project sprung to life in October 2013.

Scott Farlow and Karen Wimhurst began work, with children in four primary schools in Wiltshire and South Gloucestershire, creating, planting, composing, making, writing, singing and having the very best time of it.

Through a range of creative experiences the children have been encouraged to value and to realise their duty of care for their new orchards, as well as the natural environment that surrounds them. They also explored the history of apples and ancient cultural traditions associated with orchards. The project culminated with a bit of English madness, a community wassail.

Thanks to the children of all the participating schools for their enthusiasm and fun.
