Cherry Tree Nursery is part of the Sheltered Work Opportunities Project which is a registered charity with two sites, Cherry Tree in Northbourne, Bournemouth and Chestnut Nursery in Poole.
We are set up to address the great need for meaningful occupation in a supportive, non-pressured but realistic working environment, for adults with severe and enduring mental illness, who we refer to as volunteers.
SWOP's first project, Cherry Tree Nursery, is now a successful plant nursery sited on land leased by Bournemouth Borough Council. Starting with 4 on two acres in 1990, we now support over 120 volunteers on 4.2 acres. The nursery produces over 90,000 finishes plants 100,000 liners, 125,000 cuttings, and 1,000 specimen-sized plants annually.
