Event description

Description

This workshop will get your community group started with designing your new orchard and choosing what fruit trees to plant! We will use scale maps of your proposed site along with the Orchard Project's pioneering 3D orchard design kit to find the best position for your trees. We'll also consider complimentary features such as soft fruit bushes, wild flower patches and habitat for beneficial predators. Please come with any observations you have about your site: where is it sunny, shady, windy? Are there any areas that get waterlogged in the winter?

We have spaces for six groups to attend, with up to four members per group. The alternative date is Tuesday 5th November.

Each group that attends will also receive 5 fruit trees of their choice, donated by the Mayor of London, as part of National Tree Week! Trees will be posted to you after the workshop.

AND everyone who attends this workshop is also invited to come to the London Community Orchard Microfunder on Sunday 24th November, where you can bid for up to £400 for your orchard -- more information and booking here.

Hot drinks and snacks will be provided.


This event is supported by the Mayor of London as part of the Mayor’s National Tree Week 2019 planting programme.
