Welland Legacy Park & Community OrchardSustainable food organization.
The Welland Legacy Park houses a community orchard that is the largest & most diverse in Canada. Once the backyard of local conservationist Rex Welland, the mixed orchard features 100 varieties of rare heritage apples. It is also home to a heritage nursery and native bees habits. The Orchard is open to the public from dawn to dusk seven days a week. Work bees and educational workshops are hosted throughout the summer months. Together with the Town of View Royal and dozens of volunteers, we are working to create a new model of public park stewardship, protecting and nurturing this local treasure.
