How do I access Django table information from a new Python Project


I wonder if someone could help me. I am relativelty new to coding and have a Pycharm Professional Edition, I have just completed a Django project where users create orders via a front-end. I now want o write a new Python project which will run separately, to pick up the unprocessed orders and perform certain actions. Could someone tell me how I can get the new Python project to access the same data as the existing Django project?
