When Rachel talked with friends Emily and Mattye about her desire to be planted in a supportive, creative community of women, they immediately felt something important and special start to happen. After weeks of chatting and dreaming, The Orchard creative community for women was born. Created out of a need for a safe place for our creative hearts, that is why The Orchard exists and what we hope you’ll find here in this community.
