The idea for this blog was born on a sunny, early autumn day sat in a beach cafe bar in Malaga. A group of like-minded people with a desire to share their lives and experience through reading and writing, but not really sure how to make this happen.

Some of us are experienced bloggers, some write for a living and the rest starting out on the writing journey. We were quite taken with the idea of a blog that allows people who don’t normally do this sort of thing to have a go. Dipping toes in the online water was a theme we returned to time and time again over that weekend in Andalusia.

The name Into The Orchard came out of a thought that is quite obvious I think. We liked the notion that the very act of writing and reading is in itself nourishment. I don’t want to get too pretentious so I’ll leave it at that.

So here it is, unheralded and low key, just the way we wanted it to be.

We hope you enjoy it and if you’d like to contribute, you can come into the orchard too – just leave a comment on the blog and we’ll get in touch.
