Help Plant & Maintain a Community Orchard
Sat 25 March 2017, 13:00 – 17:00 GMT
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!
Creating & 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:
- Planting fruit trees in a range of sizes, mulching and watering them (learn how to get fruit trees off to the best start)
- Building natural tree guards from sustainably coppiced sweet chestnut (improve your carpentry skills and learn about working with natural, native, sustainable wood using traditional methods)
- Planting young edible hedgerow plants (learn about native British plants that provide food for humans and animals alike)
- Planting hundreds of flowering bulbs (ideal for people with knees that love getting muddy!)
All welcome! Join us on Tuesday & Saturday afternoons (1 - 4pm)
For groups over 5 people, please schedule your arrival and discuss your group’s priorities and abilities with us in advance.
