|Hilly Fields Orchard - June 2011|
Alona has written to tell us of a new orchard being planted in Mayow Park at the end of January. Many of you will recall that we planted our orchard in Hilly Fields around the same time last year and had a fantastic turn out. This orchard will be the third one in our borough planted in partnership with London Orchard Project Details below:
Come along and help plant 10 fruit trees in Mayow Park, Sydenham, with the London Orchard Project.
DATE: Saturday 28th January 2012 .
Time 12 - 3pm.
The orchard will be on the southern side of the park, very near the tennis courts. The London Orchard Project will bring the trees, stakes, tree guards and tools. Their staff will guide volunteers on how to plant and look after the trees.
If you live near the park, you could be involved with the care of the orchard. The trees will need regular watering, weeds removed from around the trees plus occasional mulching. In time they will need some pruning. Training will be given on care of the orchard. For more information about tree planting or becoming an orchard carer email: firstname.lastname@example.org
