About

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)

Extra info:

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 for manual work on slippery grass.

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