Part of: Urban Growth Learning Gardens
Created by Bruno Lacey
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 Londons busiest junctions!
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! Join us on Thursday afternoons (2 - 4pm)
For groups over 5 people, please schedule your arrival and discuss your groups 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
