Event description
Connect, Learn, Grow: Volunteer at the Brixton Orchard

About this event

On the corner at one of London's busiest junctions sits The Brixton Orchard. This little green oasis breathes fresh air into the space reducing air pollution, increasing biodiversity, and a haven for urban wildlife.

This rare green space in the heart of Brixton is kept alive by an army of volunteers!

Connect, Learn, and Grow by becoming a volunteer with us.

  • Get your hands dirty by planting for pollinators, mulching paths, and weeding
  • Learn how to care for fruit trees (and eat their yummy fruit!)
  • Grow traditional hedgerow plants
  • Meet new like-minded people
  • Be part of a green community

Take a proper lunch break and join us every Thursday between 1pm - 2.30pm. All welcome!
