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!
On the last Saturday of each month we hold a free public workshop. The upcoming event will be:
21st of October Preparing Fruit Trees for Winter and Planting Bulbs
Join us to put grease guards on the fruit trees to stop pests climbing up and damaging the trees
We will also explore the importance to the placement of the fruit trees, the use of mulch, planting of companion plants at near the trees and the various ecoligical activities around the site.

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) tickets are available here
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 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.)
