Welland Legacy Park & Community Orchard

Sustainable 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.

Mission Statement
We provide hands-on education to volunteers who are trained in sustainable food production, fruit tree maintenance and native pollinators, to care for and restore this unique heritage orchard.
