Event description

Description

The Brixton Orchard is a community project which aims to encourage more people to interact with and learn about the natural world on their doorstep - even in the unlikeliest of places, at one of London’s busiest junctions!
On the a Saturday near the end of each month we hold a free public workshop. The upcoming event will be:




18th of November Habitat Making for Wildlife in Winter
Join us to build habitat for bugs in the winter with bamboo and wood! Feel free to leave these at the orchard or take htem home to your garden!

We will also do general gardening and learning about horticulture and the local ecosystem on the Brixton Orchard!


Extra info:

Maintaining this green oasis involves a range of tasks, suitable for a wide range of participants, offering the chance to learn new skills and knowledge in:

- Caring for fruit trees in a range of sizes including mulching and watering them (learn how to get fruit trees off to the best start)

- Caring for young edible hedgerow plants (learn about native British plants that provide food for humans and animals alike)






All welcome! Also feel free to join us on Thursday afternoons (2 - 4pm) tickets are available here

For groups over 5 people, please schedule your arrival and discuss your group’s priorities and abilities with us in advance.

Please wear clothing appropriate for the weather and if it's hot consider wearing a hat and sunglasses and bringing suncream and a drink (although there is a cafe just across the road.)

We will supply all tools required, including gloves, but if you have your own please do bring them along.


We start our morning at Pop Farm in Pop Brixton for our urban gardening/farming session at 10am. Feel free to join us by getting tickets here
